What better way to jump-start the holiday season by getting together with some other Animals to chase some turkeys around some beautiful trails? Yeti couldn't think of anything better, so we've decided to host the TARC Turkey Trot or better yet - TARCkey Trot, at Wright-Locke Farm in Winchester, MA and Whipple Hill in Lexington, MA. The course will start at Wright-Locke, but will mostly wind its way through the remarkable singletrack of Whipple Hill, a 120-acre conservation featuring the highest point in historic Lexington The course is 5k, but don't expect a PR (if you're used to running on roads!). This is a great chance to stretch the legs and burn some calories before beginning to hibernate after that big dinner just a few days later! You'll have the option to run it once, or as many times as you care to over 6 hours.
Local time: 4:26 PM
Each loop contains about 400ft of elevation gain. There is a single aid station at the start finish that you will visit at the end of each loop. A course map can be found here.
Rest assured - you'll be ready for Thanksgiving after finishing this one!
