Turkey Day Dash Registration:

It is time to get ready for the 9th Annual Walnut Turkey Day Dash that takes place on Thanksgiving Day (Nov 28th) at 7:30 am.!  The online registration is currently open for the 2019 Walnut Turkey Day Dash 5k fun run/walk!  You can register by using this paper registration form (attached) or online by clicking this link.

To guarantee your t-shirt, your registration MUST be received by Friday, November 15, 2019, by 9;00am.  Additional t-shirts will be available on a first come, first served basis.
We will have our costume contest as well as medals for the top three finishers for both male and female for the following categories:
9 & under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-29 ,30-39, 40-49 & 50+
Teams of 6 or more still receive a discount of $3 off per person. If you want to register online, this will only work for adult team members.  If you want to include youth participants, it needs to be through the paper registration form. Youth participants can be registered online, just not as part of the team discount.
If you complete the paper registration form, drop it by or mail it to 801 Grove Ave., Emporia, KS 66801
We had just under 700 registrants last year and hope to continue to increase our numbers.  Our t-shirts are short-sleeved in navy blue with white and yellow graphics.  
We continue to keep our registrations costs low with adult registration $20 each and youth registration at $10 each.  This has become a family/friend/community tradition for many people and we want that to continue to grow!
