ANNUAL “RUN FOR FUN “TURKEY DAY 3 & 6 & 11 MILE RUN/WALK
Nov. 26th 2020
Going Virtual! Run where you are, anytime between now and Nov 30th.
Keep the tradition alive!
Turkey “Run for Fun” History – On Thanksgiving morning 1976, John Keeshan got together
with some friends to engage in a morning run from the Village Green, to the Lighthouse, and
then back again. This developed into a yearly tradition, which eventually became the annual
event that is now under the direction of the East Hampton Town, Recreation Department.
The distance from the village green to the lighthouse and back is 11 miles.
In the spirit of the original run, we will include an 11 mile run catagory.
At the request of The Montauk Food Pantry all proceeds from the race and donations benefit The Montauk Food Pantry, The East Hampton Food Pantry, The Springs Food Pantry, and Meals on Wheels.
DATE: Thanksgiving Day, November 26th, 2020
