The Katy YMCA and The Fellowship at Cinco Ranch will host the 9th annual Turkey Dash on Thanksgiving morning, November 24, 2011. The race has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years to become Katy’s premiere fun run. Last year over 3,600 participants gathered on race morning to kick off their Holiday season by participating in the Turkey Dash.
With 3 races to choose from, there’s something for everyone; a Kids Race beginning at 7:20am, 5K at 8 a.m. and a Family Walk/Run at 9:15 a.m. All races start and finish at the Katy YMCA located at the corner of Westheimer Parkway and Peek Rd, one block off the Grand Parkway in Cinco Ranch.
The event was the brainchild of leaders from the Y and the church wishing to organize an activity to bring the community together. Now the Turkey Dash is a well recognized, community Holiday kick off celebration which attracts participants from all parts of West Houston.
Race day highlights include awards in age categories for the Kids Race and 5K. Live music will play during the post race party which features door prizes, complimentary snacks and games as well as a Kids Fun Zone complete with a rockwall, moonwalks, Turkey Mascot, Santa and more!
“We have seen family participation grow over the past few years,” says Beth Strand, race coordinator. “Families creating memories is really what the Turkey Dash is all about.”
