Outside of a marathon, the best way to test a person's endurance is to see how long they can listen to a radio play-by-play of a marathon. Take on a real challenge with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one entry to the Life Time Turkey Day 5K Phoenix race, sponsored by Life Time Fitness (up to a $30 value). The race kicks off from Wesley Bolin Plaza on Thursday, November 24, at 8 a.m.
The Life Time Turkey Day 5K jump-starts Thanksgiving celebrations with a healthy, full-body feast of exercise, with proceeds benefiting local food organizations. Starting at Wesley Bolin Plaza on Jefferson Street, pavement stompers weave casually through downtown Phoenix, absorbing a scenic, urban backdrop that volunteers views of the state capitol building and various high rises applying sunscreen. After coasting to a finish, participants gather for a postrace party in the south parking lot of the Wesley Bolin Plaza, where refreshments and drop boxes for food donations accompany huffs and puffs of accomplishment. Additionally, strollers are permitted during the race but must line up behind individual runners and must not be equipped with nitrous.
