Groups and families are encouraged to register for this one of a kind race.  “We have serious runners as well as recreational runners and walkers who come out to experience this beautiful natural setting,” said Andy Dimmig, Community Outreach Coordinator for Palm Bay Parks & Recreation.  Dimmig encourages everyone to make the Turkey Creek 5K Trail Run a part of their holiday tradition.

The City of Palm Bay is also hosting a food drive the day of the race to benefit The South Brevard Sharing Center.  Participants and spectators are invited to bring non-perishable Thanksgiving food items such as cranberries, corn, green beans, gravy and packaged stuffing.  All donations are appreciated.
