On Thanksgiving morning, join the tradition with other runners on a 5 Mile USATF Certified course along Forbidden Drive, winding through beautiful Wissahickon Park.  A one-mile fun run/walk begins immediately after the 5 mile race goes off so there is something for all family members to enjoy. It’s a fun and meaningful way to begin your Thanksgiving Day: outside in nature, running in support of Face to Face – a human services organization providing meals, nurse-managed health care, legal services, social services, and children’s programs in Germantown for those struggling in poverty.
