The course will be clearly marked. You will only need to follow the arrows and route guides. This is not a flat course.

It’s a challenge if you choose to run it all! Go YOU! Walkers don’t be intimidated, just providing the “gravy” on the course. We will conquer one steady hill (Alpena School Hill) but we will also enjoy some downhill action too! We have the opportunity to run along chainsaw art and historic 100 year old buildings along Hwy 62 toward the end of the 5K. Though, we will have police support PLEASE don’t enter the highway. Thanks.
We will have awards for our winners!! Award ceremony will occur as soon as all our turkeys have made it back to the finish! The route takes you back to the park for a final lap to wrap up 3.1 miles! You rock! Our award categories will be extended this year to provide more award opportunities! Everyone will be awarded with after race refreshment. We really appreciate you celebrating Thanksgiving, health, friends, and fun with us.
