<br><br>
We highly recommend early packet pickup/registration at the Belmont Pool/start line from 1-7:45 p.m. on Wed., Nov. 21. Or, register and pick up bibs/t-shirts at least 40 minutes before the start of your race.

<br><br>Hope you'll take a moment to think of others who might want to join you on Thanksgiving morning for the run/walk fundraiser. Will you invite them now? We highly recommend early packet pickup at the Belmont Pool/start line from 1-7:45 p.m. on Wed., Nov. 21 Or, pick up bibs/t-shirts at least 40 minutes before the start of your race. <br><br>BEACHFRONT PARKING WED. and THURS. is free IF YOU BRING 2 CANNED GOODS EACH DAY, or a $2 min. donation each day. At packet pickup and on race day, parking is free with a min. $2 donation to our nonprofit (Community Action Team) or a minimum of two canned goods for local food banks on each day (Wed./Thurs.). DO NOT FEED METERS. We've rented out the parking lot for you, hoping you'll bring canned goods.<br><br>Each race time does begin on time, so leave time to find parking and use the restrooms (inside the Belmont Pool locker rooms). Wear your race bib on your front. So it's visible when you cross the finish line. </p><p>FREE HOLIDAY PIES In the Greek games, a judge would stand at the finish line holding, in plain sight, the laurel leaves that would be awarded to the winner. As runners made their way down the final stretch, they were worn out, exhausted, tired, and feeling as though they couldn't go another step. But suddenly there was the prize in clear view, and a new burst of energy would kick in. Think holiday pies: pumpkin, apple, and such. We'll be giving 700+ pies to random finishers! </p><p>CHICKEN CHUCKING CHAMPIONSHIP Spare the turkey! It's free to throw the chicken. Before and after the Turkey Trot, participants will take turns using their body (no machines) hurling a rubber chicken across the beach. Besides taking home a 2 1/2-ft. rubber chicken trophy, the Chicken Chucking Champion's fling will determine the amount of the check to be written by organizers to a local food bank - at least $2 for every foot the farthest fowl flies. This free-to-enter contest takes place near the finish line -- between the indoor and outdoor pool, on the beach. Be sure to enter -- and don't be a chicken! <a href="http://www.TurkeyTrot.us">www.TurkeyTrot.us</a> </p><p>Race director: <a href="mailto:Justin@JustinRudd.com">Justin@JustinRudd.com</a>. </p><p>Web site: <a href="http://www.TurkeyTrot.us">www.TurkeyTrot.us</a> </p><p>And, we're on Facebook: <a href="https://www.facebook.com/LongBeachTurkeyTrot">www.facebook.com/LongBeachTurkeyTrot</a> <br></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;" class="MsoNormal"><span style='color: rgb(31, 73, 125); font-family: "Calibri","sans-serif"; font-size: 11pt;'>OTHER UPCOMING C.A.T.
