-- This Thanksgiving 5K is organized by the Palmyra Ice Hockey Club, which uses "Sticks", and "Biscuits" is hockey slang for the puck.
The Sticks & Biscuits is one of the most successful Thanksgiving Day 5K's in Central PA. In order to give all participants the best possible experience, this year's race is being limited to 1,700 entries. This year's race helps fund the Palmyra Ice Hockey Club and also benefits local charities.
