PENDLETON — The public is invited to trot off some of their holiday calories during a run/walk on Thanksgiving Day.

In its ninth year, the race is changing venues. Previously held in Echo, the Club 24 Turkey Trot starts Thursday, Nov. 25, 9 a.m. at Club 24, 1845 Westgate, Pendleton. The event features a marked course along the Pendleton River Parkway. An untimed fun event, it includes distances of 1 mile, 5K and 10K.

Participants are encouraged to jump start the fun by dressing in costumes. Also, well-behaved dogs on leashes are welcome.

Profits from the Turkey Trot will be donated to Made to Thrive, a nonprofit organization serving at-risk youths in Umatilla and Morrow counties. Registration is $15 for adults and $10 for youths.
