9th Annual Twisted Turkey Trail Tussle
November 11th, 2017

"In terms of pain, this far exceeds the Marine Corps Marathon,"

-Miles Aitken, first place 2012

Twisted TurkeyThe new and improved Twisted Turkey (or Meleagris gallopavo)Trail Tussle is a 5k/10k/15k race through the winding trails within the Strawberry Hill Nature Preserve. Interested individuals are invited to walk, jog or run either the 5,10, or 15 kilometer course. This race is the perfect way to enjoy the colorful autumn foliage and burn some extra calories before Thanksgiving. That, or you can gain them right back on turkey dogs and beer from the Butcher Block and the Appalachian Brewing Company immediately following the race. It's up to you.

Either way there will be great competition, food and live music. Why haven't you signed up yet?
