The Turkey Day Beach 5K Run benefits Southern Stone-Black Crow Charities, which gives grants to nonprofits like the Boys and Girls Club and Meals on Wheels.
Entry fees for the Turkey Day Beach 5K Run are priced at $25.00 for the 5K, $30.00 for registration on the day of the race, and $60.00 for registration for all three events. If you and your guests register prior to the race, you will be guaranteed a commemorative t-shirt at the turkey run Florida. However, if you delay your registration until race day, a shirt is not guaranteed.
The 2018 Turkey Day Beach 5K Run will take place on November 22nd, with the race beginning at 9:00am and ending at 10:00am. Participants will want to show up and register for the race by 8:00am. The awards ceremony and rubber turkey toss will be held after the race at 10:00am. The location of the turkey run Florida race will be the Flagler Avenue Beach Approach.
As you run, your time is measured and scored by a disposable chip attached to your race bib. Awards will be given to the top overall male and female runners and the top three male and female age groups. Age groups are categorized into 13 and under, 14-16, 17-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, and 75+.
