The annual Turkey Trot Fun Run/ Walk at Eastman Community Association will be held Nov. 10 to benefit needy
families within the Upper Valley, providing turkey dinners for Thanksgiving and non-perishable food items for local food banks. The 5K run and two-mile walk begin from the community’s South Cove Activity Center, located at 25 Road Round Lake in Grantham.
The 5K is a scenic, hilly course on paved and unpaved roads. The two-mile walk is an out-and-back, wooded trail. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. at the activity center, and the race starts at 11 a.m. Advance individual registration is $15, and families (parents and dependent children ages 18 and younger) can participate for $32. Registration the day of the event is $18 and $38, respectively. All f
ees include a hearty lunch, and fresh, homemade pies are awarded to the winners. On-line registration is available.
Since its inception, the Turkey Trot has provided thousands of dollars in food and gift cards to needy families through social services agencies
in Grantham, Enfield and Springfield, the three communities that make up Eastman, as well as Newport.
Eastman is a four-season, residential and recreational community. Eastman Golf Links, Eastman Cross Country Center and Bistro Nouveau are all open to the public. For more information on the event, contact Eastman Recreation at 603-863-6772.
