Staying active during the Thanksgiving holiday season is more important than ever due to all the great foods available at this time. Unfortunately, working dedicated fitness activities into your day can be a challenge without assistance. The organizers for the Thanksgiving Turkey Trot know these difficulties well, which is one reason why they set up this fun event on November 23. If you want to stay active, grab your running shoes and dress up to attend this event near our Suwanee apartments.
Sign Up and Get Your Gear
You will need to sign up for the Thanksgiving Turkey Trot on your own or by joining a team. If you had competed in any other races by these organizers in the past year, your signup fee will be waived. Otherwise, it will cost you just $17 to participate in the 5K, 10K, 15K or half marathon. You do not have to dress up in a festive Thanksgiving costume, but it is encouraged. You should at least dress in light layers, wear a great pair of running shoes and bring a water bottle.
Arrive Early and Check-In
On the day of the event, don’t forget to leave our apartments in Suwanee in time to arrive at Johns Creek (3950 Johns Creek Court) by 8 a.m. When you get to the event, check in with the organizers to pay the registration fee and receive your number. Head over to the group area for your race type and wait for the signal to start the race.
Remember to Stay Hydrated
Throughout the event, make sure to sip on your water to stay hydrated. The event organizers have medics on hand to help out if you start to feel unwell. If you watch your pace and drink plenty of water along the way, you will likely finish with ease. After the races, you can attend the awards ceremony to receive a participant’s medal and a prize if you finished in the top three.
After completing the race, consider if you would like to upgrade your home in the near future. If so, contact our team at The Pointe at Suwanee Station by calling (866) 682-3177 to learn more about our apartments in Suwanee.
