Race through November

Written by 

From turkey day struts to a half marathon, November is full of opportunities to jog alongside other runners in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Find your race and get moving.

The Cherokee 5K Turkey Strut will offer a beautiful course beginning and ending at Kituwah Mound near Bryson City, starting at noon Saturday, Nov. 18. Hosted by Cherokee Choices, the run welcomes everyone from avid runners to walkers, with a variety of age groups offered. Proceeds will benefit the Cherokee Braves Booster Club, which supports athletes at Cherokee Central Schools.

The Cold Turkey 5K will return to Franklin on Thanksgiving Day, 9 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 23. The Little Turkeys FUN! Run/Walk for kids will begin at 9 a.m. with the 5K starting at 9:30 a.m. The route goes along the Little Tennessee Greenway. A portion of the funds will go to a nonprofit in Macon County, to be announced at a later date. $25.
