Turkey Trot this Sunday

The 21st annual Kispiox Valley Turkey Trot is this Sunday.

Northwest residents can celebrate Thanksgiving with a walk or run through the orange-hued fall forest at the Kispiox Valley Turkey Trot this Sunday, Oct. 11.

The 21st annual event consists of a five or 10 kilometre walk or run for adults and a three kilometre walk for kids.

Organizer Shirley Stanley-Belisle said gave local people a fun, healthy way to mark the holiday.

“It’s a fun family event, it’s designed to promote healthy living and family and friends,” she said.

Registration costs $30 and includes a long-sleeved T-shirt, chilli lunch and live entertainment by the Diamond Willow Boys.

Medals and prizes will also be handed out after the event.

Registration starts at 9 a.m. at the Kispiox Valley Community Grounds before the walk and run kicks off at 10 a.m.
