Turkey Trail Run 2014

It’s back for another run!

The Turkey Trail Run is celebrating its second anniversary at Camp Indian Mound in Oconomowoc Saturday November 1st, 2014. It’s a 5K run, or 1 mile walk, and helps us promote the good work that Scouting does in the community. It’s also a great way to spend a beautiful day in the leaves and on the trail this fall!

If your Pack, Troop or Crew displays Scouting skills like flag retirement, cooking or bottle rockets during the event you could camp for free at Indian Mound Scout Reservation!

Or choose to Run/Walk – entry fees of $20 per runner, or $8 per walker (just $5 for 17 and under!) and you can get a free tee shirt if you register by October 18th.

This year there will be a costume contest, games, music, prizes and s’more! It’s going to be a GREAT time!
