The ERC Turkey Trot is a Thanksgiving morning tradition for many families and is one of the largest Erie Runners Club events with over 1,000 participants in the three events – the 10K Run, 5K Walk & 5K Run.
This pleasant early-morning event will have you home in plenty of time for dinner and will earn you the right to stuff yourself like the traditional Thanksgiving Day turkey! Many families participate each year – with three and four generations participating in one of the three events. Why not make it a Thanksgiving Day tradition in your family?
