Back by popular demand, we will again be awarding pies to the top 3 finishers in every age group, for 10m and 5k at our Thanksgiving Day Classic. Pies will be awarded at the ceremony following the 5K, and from the timing station that will verify 10 mile results on an individual basis.
Begin your Thanksgiving celebration with a great race while helping a great cause. This event features three distances: 10 Mile, 5K, and 1 Mile Fun Run. This year we will feature a new faster 5K route, currently in the works. Early packet pickup is Wednesday, November 21st at the Peoria Sports Complex from 2 until 6 p.m. Day of race registration opens at 6:30 a.m.
10 Mile starts at 8:00 a.m. (10 Mile course map)
1 Mile Fun Run starts at 8:10 a.m.
5K starts at 8:30 a.m. (new route in the works!)
Proceeds from the races will support the Peoria Diamond Club, providing grants to many local charities including The Salvation Army and Special Olympics Arizona. In addition don’t forget to bring an unwrapped toy for the Peoria Diamond Club’s Toy Drive.
To date ARR has donated over $61,000 to these charity efforts.
Pies will be awarded to the top three winners of each age group.
This year we will be featuring long sleeve tech shirts. Race t-shirts are guaranteed to runners who pre-register and pick up their shirt before gun time. Remaining shirts will be available to race day registrants and available for purchase after gun time.
