SMT Turkey Trot 5K & Tri: The race kicks off at 8am at New Cumberland Borough Park

The trot is named after Shirley Mae Taylor who passed away in 2003 after a long, hard battle with cancer. The race is held in New Cumberland because she loved the town. Shirley worked at Coakley’s restaurant for years, loved the West Shore Theater and the library, and never missed an Apple Festival. We hold this event on Thanksgiving morning because it was one of her favorite holidays and it emphasizes family and tradition. All proceeds benefit Vickie’s Angel Foundation. http://smtturkeytrot.org/event.html

Sticks and Biscuits Thanksgiving Day 5K: 8:15AM at Klick Lewis Arena at 101 Landings Drive in Annville. This Thanksgiving 5K is organized by the Palmyra Ice Hockey Club, which uses “Sticks”, and “Biscuits” is hockey slang for the puck. http://www.leaguelineup.com/welcome.asp?url=sticksandbiscuits5k
