Oak Creek Turkey Trot 5K Race Description
Join us for Oak Creek's annual Turkey Trot along Lake Michigan.
The average American will consume approximately 3,000 calories during his/her Thanksgiving dinner this year. Add in pre-meal snacks and a serving of grandma's famous pie, and that number can easily reach upwards of 4,500 calories.
To help burn off all that food, we suggest burning off as many calories as possible before the bird even comes out of the oven.
