About This Activity

Landenberg's first and only Thanksgiving race

"A Small Town Gem!" -Small Town Gazette Press Fictional Quote

"If I could be a race, I'd be the Wild Turkey." -Overheard in group conversation after last year's event

"This is a great tradition!" -Actually stated to the RD from a neighbor

It's that time of the year again; crisp air, sweaters, college football, and the beginning of holiday eat-a-thon gatherings. Well kick off your Thanksgiving with a calorie deficit with the 6th the Wild Turkey 5-miler at Somerset Lake.

A new course this year but still just 5-miles. The course will be well marked, will begin and finish near the clubhouse, and there will be at least one aid station on the course with water and alternative beverage?!


  • first (m & f)
  • last finisher (not for sandbaggers though!)
  • best costume(s)
  • youngest finisher
  • oldest finisher
  • least dressed
  • best running turkey costume

Great Post-race party: We know how busy this morning is (which is why it's a 7:30 start!) so as soon as the last person finishes (usually around 8:30) we celebrate! All of the awards are given out along with the Grandma's Lost-Potatoes prizes (part of the tradition!) . There will be water, beer and light fare to enjoy.

(Course map coming soon!)

*The first 20 registrants will be entered into a special drawing for 30-second head start, drawn on race morning! Only one person will win this opportunity...
