Run the Skinny Turkey Half Marathon & 5k Thanksgiving morning and feel guilt-free (or less guilty) about gobbling down later on! The race is in it’s 6th year and takes place at the Wakefield High School in North Raleigh. The course is described as scenic with rolling hills to test your fitness.
FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
The JUST THINK FIRST 5K Road Race, held each year in the fall, is the major fundraiser for the program. This year the road race is funding a new video currently being produced on the topic of “teens and teenage drug use.” The appeal of the JUST THINK FIRST teaching videos relies largely on the fact that they tell the story of something that happened to real people; rather, real students who attended school at Wakefield High. Besides funding for the video projects, proceeds from the 5K race also pay for speakers and various activities planned during the school year. In addition, scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors in the spring. This year’s JUST THINK FIRST Road Race starts and finishes at the school on Thanksgiving Day with the 5K run beginning at 8:00 am.
