Participating in The Hungry Turkey gives families a great way to kick off Thanksgiving Day while eliminating the guilt of gobbling up yummy eats later in the day. A first-class, chip-timed event, The Hungry Turkey is run in conjunction with the Thanksgiving Day Parade in downtown St. Louis. The event also raises funds for a local charity during the holiday season. Since 2013, more than 3,400 lbs of canned goods and more than $4,000 has been donated to Operation Food Search. To encourage the entire family on Thanksgiving morning to participate, the event is stroller and pet friendly and children 12 years and under can register for FREE! Participants in the kids 12 and younger (with paid adult entry) category may select to be timed for a fee of $5.00. Or you can select to be timed AND receive an official Hungry Turkey shirt for $18.00.
Race packets may be picked up at Big River Running Company in South City (5352 Devonshire Ave.) or Big River Running Company in West County (14047 Manchester Road) on Tuesday, November 22 from 10 AM to 7 PM, or at the event near the starting line from 6 AM to 7:15 AM.
