Thanksgiving Turkey Day 5K In Simi Valley Is Back & Has Gone Green

SIMI VALLEY, CA – This coming Thanksgiving the 8th annual “Turkey Day 5K” is celebrating and welcoming back elite runners and weekend warriors alike.  A tradition in Southern California and throughout America, running a 5K on Thanksgiving gives you an excuse and reason to overeat later in the day.  Besides the feelings of Americana that will ooze out of your pores like sweat, another added bonus in participating is the “Going Green” aspect of the race.  Organizers have opted to do away with plastic cups at race pitstops, to promote a more sustainable environment and reduce single use item usage.

Running“We are going cup-less, and there are no longer disposable cups at our events,” said Bill Escobar, owner of Elite Sports CA based in Camarillo.  “We will have reusable cups for you to purchase on race day or at packet pickup.  And you can also bring your own cup.  There will be water and Gatorade at all refueling stations, so we have you covered either way.  But we encourage you to bring your own cup!”

As far as masks and gaiters for running, or even if you need them at all.  Escobar commented, “The health department is telling us that we do not need any masks for this event, so you do what’s comfortable for you and we are all good.  If the rules change by race day, we will of course announce the details as soon as we know them”.

The race has become a fixture in Southern California, and if the perfect kickoff to the long holiday weekend.  The race is on Thursday, November 25th, 2021 and the details for signing up online can be found at https://thanksgivingday5k.com/ — The race starts at Rancho Simi park, heads north onto a bike path, turns right (east) towards Erringer, then goes Left at Erringer over the Arroyo, then Left again onto the bike path which is now heading West to the turnaround just past 1st street and back to the finish line the same way you came out.
