A family event for a family day!
Come and get some fresh air before the big meal! This is a low key event- definitely NOT intended to take up your entire day! Come out for some exercise with your family and guests and get back home to your day!
It's just nice to do a community event that helps the local homeless shelter- what a perfect fit for Thanksgiving!
While many folks are thinking about their place settings, some people don't have a home or spot to call their own. Let's help them get back on their feet and going in the right direction!
It's low key and affordable but a feel good community event.
There is nothing going on in the morning, so come out and get some fresh air.
It's not intended to be an all morning, long event. There isn't an awards ceremony, just out, get some fresh air and them get back to your families!
AND- every penny goes to the Faith Mission shelter in Elkhart.What a great thing for Thanksgiving! Help those who don't have a home to go to!
3 distances to chose from 1 mile walk, 5K run or walk, 10K run. All races start and finish in front of Hobby Lobby at Concord Mall in parking lot.
There is plenty of room to stay warm and stretch before the event! We have the entire mall- with tunes from EA Pro Music!
We are staying with Concord Mall for 2018! We like using Concord Mall. Everyone was happy with the easy in and out access and plenty of free parking.
The idea is to come and get some fresh air with your family and guests and then get back home to your day! Easy access to 20 and main roads - in and out!
We will have plenty of ports Potts outside, plus there are restrooms and space inside by the food court as well as by Hobby Lobby.
The 5K route is through Green Valley neighborhood, which has lots of trees and nice homes! The 10K course will cover Green Valley first, but will also add a section on country roads. We have you running against traffic.
The mile course will be within the Concord Mall area, so you will never be far from the action and it will be fine for strollers and your socialized dogs.
There will be plenty of cocoa, fruit, snack bars and more for you to snack on after the race! Just look for the Faith Mission Box truck by the finish line.
Welcome Speedsters! Bring your heat!
The Turkey Stampede is a fundraiser for the Faith Mission of Elkhart, Inc. Every penny of your entry fee goes to the work there to try to help people get back on their own two feet.
The Faith Mission is a Christian social service agency which provides food, shelter, clothing, meals, counseling and other services for homeless and transitioning individuals and families.
The Mission is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization independently governed by a volunteer board of directors.
As always, the first male and female to catch the turkey get $25 in cash!
