Event Details

Turkey Hunt 5k for Autism Speaks

This is a virtual run/walk and can be done wherever you want between August 1st and November 30th.  For the $25 entry fee you will recieve a medal commemorating this event and your contribution to this great cause.  From January 9th to the 12th I will be running 48.6 miles for the Dopey Challenge in Walt Disney World.  I am doing so to raise money for Autism Speaks.  In order to help that effort I have created the Turkey Hunt 5k for Autism Speaks.  The entry fee pays for the medal and shipping with.  All other proceeds from this event will be given to Autism Speaks through my person fundraising page which you can reach here.

This is intended to be a fun run/walk so be creative.  The name is the Turkey Hunt 5k, so on your run include something turkey related.  Maybe you snap a picture of a real turkey in your travels.  Maybe you dress up like a turkey to turn some heads while running in your neighborhood.  Be creative and suprise me because the most creative entries will be selected and chosen to one one of a few special prizes.

Race Prizes

These prizes will be awarded for the most creative run based upon the Turkey Hunt theme.  After the event ends or sells out I will create a photo album on the events facebook page where fellow participants can vote for their favorite submissions.  If you wish to be eligible you must send in a link or screenshot from the app or device recording your run along with a picture.   Only votes from fellow registered participants will count.  In the event there is a tie the deciding vote will be mine and the final decision on winners will be up to the event organizer (there have to be some perks for organizing this thing right). 

Autographed Hal Higdon Novel!!!!  What runner out there hasn't heard of Hal Higdon?  Mr. Higdon has contributed to Runners World for longer than any other author.  He ran eight times in the Olympic Trials and has won four world masters championships.  He also found time to write a novel and you can win an autographed copy here!!

Whether you are running a Marathon or a 5k a little boost of energy and some fuel can't hurt so thanks to the good people at GU Energy Labs we have  GU products for lucky winners!
