FRAMINGHAM – Sunday, November 1, is the deadline to purchase a t-shirt and participate in the virtual Framingham Turkey Classic 5K road race.
“2020 has been a challenging year for all of us and unfortunately we will not be able to come together on Thanksgiving to run the Turkey Classic. However, we want the tradition to continue, so our hope is that people will run or walk a 5K on Thanksgiving Day,” said organizers.
There is no registration fee this year.
Participants are asked to purchase a T-shirt to support The Veterans Outreach Center-Metrowest and other local charities, said organizer Tim Campion.

Cost is $20 for the t-shirt plus about $5 to ship. There are two color choices. T-shirts will be mailed and can NOT be picked up.
On Thanksgiving morning (or any day in November) go out and walk or run a 5K.
Follow social distancing guidelines to stay safe and DO NOT run the usual race route on Thanksgiving morning or any other day.
“We encourage you to take pictures and tag the Framingham Turkey Classic Facebook page or send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org,” said organizers.
