Ready, Set, Trot! 5 Reasons to Register for the Fast & the Furriest Turkey Trot

If this is the first time you’re hearing of the Fast and the Furriest Turkey Trot, then you’re in for a treat! Ocean City, NJ’s annual Thanksgiving 5K is back, and you’re not going to want to miss it this year. Here’s why:

1. You’re Contributing to a GREAT Cause                                               

All proceeds from the Fast and the Furriest Turkey Trot go to the Ocean City Humane Society. So just for signing up and running on Turkey Day, you’ll be helping a homeless dog or cat get the care they need and deserve.

2. You Won’t Feel as Bad About that Extra Piece of Stuffing

This is probably a given, right? Running or walking a 5K couldn’t have a better counterpart than stuffing your face later with some turkey, potatoes, and… well, lots of stuffing. We may go so far as to say this could be your free pass for the whole weekend, too!

3. The Kids Can Take Part, Too!

The kids might not be crazy about a 5K, but they’ll be excited to walk or run a mile on the boardwalk. The 1M Fun Run is for kids ages 14 and under, and takes place right after the 5K, so they can feel good contributing, too!

4. You Can Register with a Team

Grab your family members or closest friends and put a Turkey Trot team together! Start off Thanksgiving morning with this early walk/run, then head back to start the Thanksgiving festivities.

5. You’ll Get a Cool T-Shirt…

…Along with awards, and post-race refreshments. And who doesn’t like free t-shirts that show you’ve contributed to a good cause?

The Fast and the Furriest 5K Turkey Trot in Ocean City is a great way to start off your Thanksgiving holiday, along with spending some quality time with family and friends, and helping out animals in need.

Registration ends November 18, 2017 for both the 5K and the Kids Fun Run, so get signed up today!
