This is the 31st running of the Talking Turkey Road Race, sponsored in part by the Empire One Running Club. The race is approximately six miles and runs around Ashley Reservoir in Holyoke, MA. The footing ranges from loose gravel, pavement, and dirt trail. Parking and start are located at the #902 Holyoke Lodge of Elks, on 250 Whitney Avenue, right next to the reservoir. It's an easy ride in and out.
1:00 is the start time so get there early if you need to pre-register or stretch. It's $25 to register before November 21st and $35 to register after November 21st. Registration forms can be picked up at Fast Feet in West Springfield or you can register online at www.active.com...
They always have a great embroidered t-shirt. The race is popular and always heavily attended. Anyone interested can contact me and we can rideshare, or we can meetup at the event. Unfortunately, I'm ditching other obligations to run, so I can't stick around long afterward.
Runners can find me hanging around outside the front door to the Elks club before the event. I'll have a red Christmas hat on. I tried to get a turkey hat, but no such luck.
