The annual Turkey Trot 5K (3.1 miles) will be held on Thursday, November 28th, 2013, 8am, in downtown Hopkinsville. This is a non-competitive, not timed event, which is fun for the entire family. Participants are welcome to run, walk, stroll, skate, or bicycle. Do as much or as little as you chose. Dogs on leashes are welcome. It’s all about getting out, getting together, getting some exercise, having some fun and supporting a great cause.
