Your Thanksgiving Day Race!

Kick off your Thanksgiving with a 3 Mile Run, 1 Mile Walk and some tasty CHOCOLATE!

That’s right, the Chocolate Turkey presented by CEFCU and REMAX is on Thanksgiving Day and all participants will get a chocolate turkey, limited edition race shirt, and best of all – some chocolate goodies after the race! We are partnering again with the Heller Center for Kids with Cancer at OSF HealthCare Children's Hospital of Illinois.
