How is it almost Thanksgiving???
If you’re anything like me, you love chilling out, relaxing with the family and eating some really good food. Possibly too much food. Yes, please!
However, I love the idea of getting in some #turkeytrot miles before hand. Make some room for some of the calories I am about to consume? Sign me up!
Except the options in my area are rather limited. There’s one 45 minutes away that I know I won’t drive to. The one I have done is so sneaky it never advertises online nor is registration available online so I never really know if it’s even happening. So now what?
The Oakland Turkey Trot is a party for the whole family. They offer a 5K, 5K VIP and a variety of options for kids in a Stomper’s Stomp. They offer you a fun, healthy way to start your day and to give back to the Oakland community. All proceeds from the race will benefit the Oakland community. Oakland Turkey Trot partners with the Alameda County Community Food Bank, Oakland’s Public Schools, the City of Oakland, the local mayor and other local charities to help benefit the community.
Plus it looks like a blast.
I know what you’re thinking. Wait, Fallon, you won’t drive 45 minutes but you’re driving to Oakland? Sadly, I am not.
But they have a virtual option! Sign up for the virtual race, run the miles on your own on Turkey Day and they send you all the same amazing race swag. And the medal is pretty sweet. Check out their Insta.
I may be missing out on the party on Thanksgiving morning but you don’t have to! Use code BROTTVIP to save 10% on registration. Or use it to register for the virtual option like me.
