The early entry fees are $20 for adults, $5 for kids 12 and under. The day of the race, fees are $25 for adults, $10 for the kids.

The Turkey Trot includes a five-mile run over mostly paved (some gravel) roads, with rolling hills.  The walk is on pavement and grass and is relatively flat.  The event will happen come snow, rain or shine.

There will also be a traditional bake sale, with lots of goodies.
