• Main purpose or goal: GWTC, Premier Fitness Center, Capital City Runners and Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare are joining forces to create the best Tallahassee Turkey Trot Training Group ever! Runners will have an opportunity to participate in up to four training groups a week. In addition to those training groups, runners are invited to two panel discussions – the first on Tuesday, September 26, starting at 7:15 and the second on October 10, also starting at 7:15. Both will be at Premier Health & Fitness Center. They will get you ready to run your distance of choice on Thanksgiving. Register at Eventbrite or training spot. (no cost!). Runners are encouraged to bring donations of food items like rice, beans, cans of soup, canned fruit and vegetables, dry pasta and jar pasta, toilet paper and laundry detergent. GWTC member Jude Dugas works with the Big Bend Homeless Coalition – Advocates for Veteran’s Housing Program. He will collect the donations and make sure they get to the people who need them.
