Thanksgiving Morning 8 Mile Prediction Race Thursday, November 22, 2012 Start Time: 8am Cost: $5 Location: Ada, MI (Start located near Fulton & Grand River) !!CASH PRIZES!!
Information: Join us for our own version of a Thanksgiving Turkey Trot - with one difference: you don't have to run fast in order to win! The Predict-A-Turkey 8 miler is not necessarily a race but rather a prediction run: you predict your time beforehand and try to run as close to that time as possible. The winner(s) of the run will finish closest to his/her pre-race predicted time. There is one major rule: runners must not keep track of their running time during the race (no watches)!
The $5 entry fee will go entirely to the winners. Please bring your entry fee in cash to the morning of the race. There is no online registration, credit card payment, and please do not bring a personal check.Please complete the pre-registration form on this website - you will pay the morning of the race and you CAN change your time the morning of; pre-registration helps us to plan on the number of participants.
Note: This is a no budget, no organization, honor system race. There will not be any t-shirts, water/aid stations, course officials, med tents, etc. The race is not affiliated with any charity, business or organization: Just 8 miles of road and a bunch of turkeys (I mean...runners).
