Turkey Day 5k with WOW 104.3

One of my most favorite events of the year is right around the corner!

There are some events that we’re a part of that I life, then there are some events that I absolutely LOVE.

The Lifetime Turkey Day 5K is one of those events. I love seeing thousand of people getting up nice and early surrounded by their friends and family getting active before their mid morning nap!


Here are five reasons why you should register for the best Turkey Day run in Idaho!

A Great Cause



Proceeds from the Turkey Day Run will benefit the Boise Rescue Mission’s City Light Home for Women and Children AND local Special Olympics teams.

You can also bring non-perishable food items to the start area to fill up local food bank pantries!!

One of the best things about the Lifetime Turkey Day 5K is the enthusiasm from all the participants. Last year some runner even ran in full costumes. We saw human-sized turkeys, pilgrims, and so. many. tutus!

Family Bonding



There’s nothing better than going out with the ENTIRE family to get fit and active before a long day of eating, and eating, and eating.

Every year, I talk to so many people who say this is event is an annual tradition to get their day going.

LIVE Music



To keep with the whole family tradition feel, this year’s Lifetime Turkey Day 5k performers will be a band composed of two local brothers, Sean and Kyle, called Red Light Challenge!
