On Thanksgiving morning, join us for the 19th Annual BRC 5-Mile “Run to Give” Turkey Trot.  CLICK HERE for registration 2016-turkey-trot-flyerand more details.  This race will take place 8:00 – 9:10 a.m., Thursday, Nov. 24th, 2016 at De Soto National Park.

This is a unique and widely attended family-oriented community event. We have never charged a registration fee, but instead ask all participants to recognize the efforts of selected local charities — Turning Points and the The Food Bank of Manatee. New this year, all donors will receive a special commemorative wristband! Please be generous to these organizations that do so much for our Manatee County community.

On race day, BRC will also be collecting cash donations to help offset event costs and accepting canned goods and gently-used clothes. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we also ask participants to bring something to share with other runners. Running favorites like bagels, bananas, oranges, energy bars, sport drinks or water are always welcome and make for a great post-race gathering.

CLICK HERE for online registration information and more details. Please note, limited race-day registration will be available if there is space.
