Update on the 1st Annual Brent and Rachel (and Pippin!) Turkey Trot

Hey! I'm so glad there are so many of you interested in participating in the 1st annual Brent and Rachel (and Pippin!) 5K Turkey Trot! The rules are pretty simple since there really aren't any rules. You can run/walk/waddle your 5K anytime between Thurs-Sunday, anywhere you want (all countries are welcome!!), any way you want. Just email me or post a comment with your time, age (only if you want to), and the approximate temperature when you ran your 5K before the end of the day Monday. Since so many of you guys are in the North it only seems fair to appreciate the coldness & dedication of your run/walk. And since there are so many of you in warm Southern places we always need a new reason to hate on you, too. J/K. Also, if your dog/pets participate be sure to send their name, age, sex, breed and time for the special doggie division! If you take a picture of your 'event' forward that as well and we'll post everyone's pics along with the results and a link to your blog. The good news is everyone is so spread out you've pretty much got a lock on being first in your race location! THAT's the kind of racing I'm talking about! Maybe Brent will surprise me with a medal for taking the women's division of the Hohenwald, TN branch of this race (that's where we'll be for T-giving)!

Also, just to take it up a notch and make our virtual race semi-professional we have a downloadable bib for you! You can write whatever number you like on it (I've always wanted to be #1!) if you'd like to use it. You will still have to provide your own waterstops and post race fruit (or just hold out for some turkey.)

I'm in but I have to add 2 miles to it to get in my planned 5 mile run - is that ok are will I be one of those annoying runners at races who finish way before the mortals and show off by running BACK along the race course!!!

I was so glad to come across your site. I want to do more races...but it is a little hard with the girls and my husband gone. But after the half marathon, I want to really look into doing more.

Do you belong to Nashville Striders?

I am looking forward to seeing th results! This was a great idea!

Too funny! I just wish I'd seen this before Thanksgiving. I was at my mom's and didn't find out about a very small 5k, not-well-advertised run until the day after Thanksgiving. I posted on my own blog that I was bummed about not having a t-shirt or anything to show for it.
