9th Annual Turkey Trot Recap

Wild Workouts and Wellness hosted our 9th Annual Turkey Trot this past Thursday.  It’s one of our favorite events of the year and it’s become a tradition for many of the families both members, and non-members of Wild Workouts.

We started off our morning with announcing the Top 3 Winners of our “Your Best Body Challenge.”

Sara Zavadsky came in 1st place, followed by Jon Howard in 2nd Place, and Augie Santiago finishing in 3rd.  See our other blog titled “Winners of ‘Your Best Body’ Challenge” to view their incredible fat loss results and check out what amazing prizes they won from local sponsors.

We had many return veterans and it was so great to see over 45 new faces as well!  There were people of all ages from children to seniors and we just love that so many of you brought your dogs with you.

Next, we headed out on our Turkey Trot.  Participants were able to choose from an 8K run, a 5K adventure run/walk or a 1.5K walk.  It was a brisk day, that’s for sure, but we kept moving!  We all kicked butt and warmed up with some hot coffee and healthy, gluten-free snacks at Wild Workouts and Wellness immediately following the Trot.

We were BLOWN AWAY with an all time record attendance this year.  We lost count at 117 people!  Amazing!  It fills our hearts to see people jump start their day with giving back to the community and getting in some great exercise with your Wild family before you head over to your family’s home for Turkey dinner.

Best of all, we collected SO many bags and boxes full of non-perishable food item donations that we are donating the Bay View Community Center’s Food Pantry to help out less fortunate local families in our community this holiday season.  So thank you for your generous donations!

Looking forward to the Turkey Trot 2014.  Than you again for making this event so special and such a success!
