The Great Turkey Escape

WEATHER UPDATE 11/26/14 8AM:  Storm has been downgraded - 25% less snow.  3"- 6" down from 4"-8". Race time remains 8am for the 1 miler, 8:30am for the 5K.

WEATHER UPDATE 11/25/14:  Looks like the brunt of the storm is coming Wednesday morning to Wednesday evening, so, as of now, we intend for the races to go off at their scheduled times.  I've talked to 7 other race directors, whom are holding Thursday morning races, and all of them currently plan to start on time.  Here's a great weather tracking website:

Race Day Registration: There will be race day registration as long as we don't reach our registration limits.  We've ordered a set amount of bibs and shirts - once they're gone, registration will close.  So, register soon, ito avoid being closed out.

Registration for The 2014 Redding Great Turkey Escape is now open (Walkers welcome) - we'll have another great race this year, with better gifts, a cheaper price, better facilities on a better course!!***
