Start Thanksgiving with the Coshocton Turkey Trot

| November 17, 2015

COSHOCTON – The second annual Coshocton Turkey Trot is a great way to work up your appetite before sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner.

“Last year we had 60 participants and our pre-registration has already exceeded that,” said Kelly Treat, who is helping organize the event.

The annual Coshocton Turkey Trot will be held at 8 a.m. Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, Nov. 26, at Lake Park. Race day registration is from 7 to 7:45 a.m. Cost is $25 for pre-registration or $30 the day of the race. Those who registered before Nov. 16 were guaranteed a race gift and other participants will receive them as they are available. The race is hosted by NLM 20:30 young adult ministry at New Life Ministries.

“We were hearing that it would be great to have some sort of race around Thanksgiving so we just followed up on what we were hearing,” Treat said.

NLM 20:30 young adult ministry uses proceeds from the race to help with the church’s food pantry and other projects at the church.

“A lot of our young adults are involved in many areas of the church,” Treat said.

She encourages people of all ages and abilities to sign up for the Coshocton Turkey Trot.

“It’s a fun atmosphere,” Treat said. “We have music going before and after the race, a turkey mascot, participants dress up and we have serious runners and people come who just want to walk it. It’s really fun to be part of.”
