All Hail TurkeyMan


Feeling a bit ambitious when it comes to physical activity on Thanksgiving? You have one more day to register for the TurkeyMan Splash 'n’ Dash at the West YMCA.

It’s an individual/team event. Confused? Here how it works. Individuals will be assigned to teams on the basis of their estimated times for the swimming and running portions of the race. Each person will compete individually, but their results will be combined to their teammates’ times to come up with the ultimate TurkeyMan winner. And what better way to offset the offense of moving on Thanksgiving than to brag that you are TurkeyMan?

How do you win the title? Swim three laps in the 50-meter pool and run 1.5 miles. The event will be held from Thursday, Nov. 26, 9-10 a.m. Advanced registration is Tuesday, Nov. 24, so get movin’.

To register, e-mail your estimated run and swim times to Cost is $7 for YMCA members or $10 for the public.
