Wagner’s RunWalk Partners with Track Club to Host Turkey Trot in Tuscaloosa, Alabama
Wagner's RunWalk will partner with the Tuscaloosa Track Club to host its 13th annual Turkey Trot on November 20th at 8 a.m.
The Turkey Trot is a two-mile, family-friendly race in which participants can run or walk.
"We have runners and walkers of all abilities come out," said Kendall Thompson, the director of retail for Wagner's RunWalk. "We really hope that runners and walkers of all levels do come out and nobody feels intimidated to come. Like, we truly have all ages, all shapes [and] all sizes come."
The event also serves to promote membership in the Tuscaloosa Track Club. All participants will receive a one-year Tuscaloosa Track Club membership, a t-shirt and an insulated Turkey Trot cup.
The race will be held at Wagner's Warehouse at 406 Bridge Ave. in Northport. Thompson says they decided to have the race at their office location to allow for more space.
"So we're holding it at our office location rather than our store so that we have a little bit more room for everybody to kind of distance themselves," Thompson said. "Last year was the first year we transitioned the race there, and it worked out really nicely that everybody could spread out a little bit more."
In addition to partnering with the track club, Wagner's is also partnering with the Community Soup Bowl and asks that people bring canned food items to the race.
"We just encourage people to bring a few canned items that day to the race so that we can then take those to the community soup bowl after," Thompson said.
Registration for a single runner costs $25, and it is $35 for a family. There will also be giveaways and prizes handed out after the race. Those who wish to register for the Turkey Trot can visit the Tuscaloosa Track Club's website.
