Turkey Trot

Emily Faherty from DailyBurn.com provided us with these great Thanksgiving Turkey Trots!

1| Run for the Diamonds

Location: Berwick, PA

"We’re still not sure what diamonds have to do with Thanksgiving, but the bling sure gets 2,000 runners up and at ‘em! The top seven male and female winners of the challenging 9-mile Run for Diamonds (the fourth oldest road race in America), take home diamond rings and diamond pendants, respectively. And for those who miss out on the prized jewels, there’s always free post-race pizza and soda to look forward to!"

More than 10,000 runners and walkers will participate in this year’s 4-mile race or ¼-mile family fun run. Those of drinking age can enjoy the craft beer garden party (featuring local breweries like Great Divide, Renegade and Wynkoop) at the finish line."
