Fun-filled Turkey Trot ready for 13th year on Thanksgiving Day
November 8, 2023
The Turkey Trot returns to Wrangell for its 13th year at 9 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 23, at the Volunteer Park Nature Trail.
Sign-ups begin at 8:45 a.m. at the covered basketball court behind Evergreen Elementary School. Sponsored by Parks and Recreation, the 5-kilometer (3.1 miles) race course is a three-times loop of the Nature Trail. Participants can choose to either run or walk. Though there isn’t an entry fee, a donation of $10 is suggested.
Recreation Coordinator Devyn Johnson expects a turnout similar to last year. “We usually get about 60 to 70. It’s a family event.”
