It may not seem like it, but Turkey Day is not too far away, which means it's time for Walnut Creek families to get ready to enjoy a morning run before that Thanksgiving meal.
The 21st annual Turkey Trot, a fundraiser for Walnut Creek schools, will take place 8 a.m. Nov. 28 downtown.
People can register now for the 5K or 10K runs and kids fun run for ages 12 and under. All sponsored by Forma Gym.
Walnut Creek schools are given money through the Walnut Creek Education Foundation and Partners for Educational Achievement when people signing up indicate a school they support.
Other charities that will receive donations include The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, The Wellness City Challenge, the Forma Kids Fundation and the San Pablo Corridor Coalition, which supports underprivileged children in Oakland.
The cost ranges from $12 for the fun run to $28.
Volunteers are needed for race preparation and on race day. To register or to learn more go to wcturkeytrot.webconnex.com/2013
