Turkey Trots in Lake County 2018

By: Jack Nelson 11/13/2018

The average American will eat around 3,000 calories this Thanksgiving and for those who may be uninformed, that's a lot. Is it worth it, you ask? Without a doubt.

Thanks to many incredible Lake County organizations, you can pre-burn a chunk of said calories BEFORE the feast!



If running sounds like your purgatory, go just to cheer someone on! (It will at least get you away from the stress for a few hours!)

Lace 'em up tight and continue reading for a list of Turkey Trots in Lake County 2018. For a complete list of events and activities in Lake County, continue here.
