Last year for the first time the SHHC (Signal Hill Hiking Club) ran as a team in the Annual Long Beach Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning and we had so much fun! For the majority of our team it was actually their first time running in any sort of a race and they all did so great! You can run, walk, a little of both...whatever pace you want and we will all start together and then meet at the end.
This Turkey Trot is in Belmont Shore and we run first thing Thanksgiving morning along the oceans edge and the weather is typically perfect! Why not join us and feel less guilty at the Thanksgiving dinner table afterwards because you will know that you earned it. :-) And as an FYI, this race benefits one of my favorite community activist Justin Rudd and his nonprofit CAT (Community Action Team). http://justinrudd.com/trot.html
You need to sign up on the Turkey Trot website under our group (The Signal Hill Hiking Club) to qualify for the group rate. You MUST sign yourself up. Click here to do so: https://www.raceit.com/register/groups/default.aspx?event=5812. Once there click on: "Join an existing Team", and then go to the drop down and select "Signal Hill Hiking Club". This is the only way to qualify for the group rate. We are doing as a team the 8am 10k.
There are four (4) start times to choose: 7, 8, 9 or 10 a.m. but as a group we will be doing the 8am start.
6,000+ runners & walkers expected at the 9th annual Long Beach Turkey Trot. We will all be proudly wearing our shirts too (seen in the picture above) so if you don't have one and want one let me ASAP as we are going to be ordering them by the 25th of October. They are $25 dollars each.
Join us! There is no better way to start your Thanksgiving Day morning. :-)
