Hailey Turkey Trot has a new course

Family run on Thanksgiving morning


     There’s a new course for the ninth annual Hailey Turkey Trot family 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) run and walk scheduled for Thanksgiving Day morning, on Thursday, Nov. 22.

     Proceeds benefit Souper Supper providing hot meals for families and individuals in need, and the Girls on the Run program for youngsters.

     Rain or shine, the community event that attracts hundreds of participants each year will begin Thursday at 10 a.m. at the Hailey Holiday Square, located between Hailey Public Library and the Hailey Hotel.

     The course takes runners down River St. to Broadford Road, and through the Della View neighborhood to Draper Preserve. The runners will cross the Big Wood River across the new Bow Bridge, pass Lions Park and come out on Croy Creek Rd. Finish line is at Hailey Holiday Square.

     Pre-register in person today, Wednesday from 8 a.m. through 7 p.m. at the Hailey office of race sponsor Blaine County Title, located in the E.G. Willis Building above Shorty’s.

     Entry fees through today are $15 per person or $40 for each family. Race day entries will be accepted Thursday, but the fees will rise to $30 per person or $70 per family.

     The entry fees include a Turkey Trot beanie (for the first 500 registered entries), coffee and hot chocolate and a chance to win raffle prizes. Strollers, kids on bikes and dogs on leashes are welcomed.

     Donations of non-perishable items to help restock the Souper Supper pantry will be collected at the race start.
