Runners who want to get a little exercise before their Thanksgiving feast can participate in the annual Turkey Trot at John Topits Park in Coos Bay on Thursday.
The non-competitive event starts at 9 a.m. at the park. The entry fee is at least two cans of food for a local food bank.
The suggested distance is 5 kilometers on the park’s paved trails, but runners can choose any distance they want. People of all ages are invited.
The next regular club run will be Mac’s Run on Saturday, Dec. 9, starting at 10 a.m. at Sunset Bay State Park in Charleston.
That event includes 5-kilomter and 10-kilometer races on roads. Both races loop through Shore Acres State Park and the longer race also goes through Cape Arago State Park before returning to Sunset Bay.
The South Coast Running Club will hold its annual meeting after the run.
