Like problems or a family photograph opportunity, the finish line can be counterproductive to run away from. Bombard the finish line at your own pace with today's Groupon: for $19, you get registration to a 5K or 10K race at the Long Beach Turkey Trot on Thursday, November 24, at the Belmont Pool in Long Beach (a $38 value). The 10K race begins at 9 a.m., and the 5K race begins at 10 a.m. Each registered racer who arrives 30 minutes early to their race will receive a designer T-shirt and a personalized bib.
The ninth-annual Long Beach Turkey Trot kicks off Thanksgiving Day festivities with an invigorating exercise that benefits Justin Rudd's nonprofit Community Action Team. Outfitted with a designer T-shirt and personalized bib, contestants can amble, sprint, or transform the apparel into a sail to fly along the beachside bike path. Waiting at the finish line with more than 600 holiday pies, event staff will reward random finishers with baked prizes that guests can later eat by stuffing into a dessert turkey. In addition, guests can donate a minimum of one canned good or $1 donation for the event's nonprofit charity to receive free access to the beachfront parking lot.
