Before you sit down to gorge yourself this Thanksgiving, consider burning off a few calories for a good cause.

Pre-registration is $20, and race-day registration is $25. For those ages 8 and under, pre-registration is $10 and race-day is $15.

The course winds through 141 wooded acres of the picturesque Elks Aidmore center, which provides programs for at-risk girls and youth.
