Annual Turkey Trot scheduled

On Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 28, from 9 to 11 a.m., the Marquette Senior High School will hold its annual 5K and 10K Turkey Trot Run/Walk. 

This longstanding event will begin at the Marquette Senior High School and proceed west along Fair Avenue to the multi-use path, where it will then cross Fair Avenue and proceed north along the path to Hawley Street, then east along the path to Lakeshore Boulevard, then north along the path on Lakeshore Boulevard to the ore dock. Runners/walkers will return along the same route to finish at the Marquette Senior High School. 

The 5K walk/run event will follow part of the same route, turning around near Tourist Park.
