MAZOCK'S 41ST THANKSGIVING MORNING RUN

  • 2828 Emerald Lake Drive Fort Wayne, IN, 46804 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Start a Thanksgiving Tradition! Walk or run as far or as little you wish at this free event.

Where: 2828 Emerald Lake Dr, Fort Wayne, IN, United States
When: November 23, 2017 @ 8:00AM
Who: Jerry Mazock (jerryfoxdanadog@gmail.com)

A very informal run-Not a race. It's a free event! Run or walk as many 1.5 mile laps on our neighborhood course as you like, then, come inside for doughnuts, coffee and Holiday Chatter & Cheer. Last year we had 68-72 participants who wanted to get their workout in before their Thanksgiving Day begins. It's also a good alternative for those who don't want to race that day. Hope you can come!
