BUCKHANNON — If you missed the pre-registration deadline, fear not, for you can still show up on Thanksgiving morning to participate in the Upshur County Recreation Complex’s fourth annual Turkey Trot 5K.
The run will take place Thursday, Nov. 23, 2023, with the race stepping off at 9 a.m. and check-in beginning at 8 a.m. Kicking off at Jawbone Park, the Turkey Trot 5K takes participants on a route through the beautiful City of Buckhannon.
