As turkeys. Thats where the weirdness comes in.
The four-mile trot is a major annual fundraiser for the local chapter of United Way, which works with a variety of nonprofits that administer everything from preschool help to continuing education for grownups. Last years event brought out more than 10,000 trotters, which, at $40 per registration, amounts to an unqualified success.
Serious runners should show up at 8 a.m. at South Franklin and Louisiana streets in Washington Park to jockey for a prime spot, but the run doesnt officially start until 10:15 a.m.; the family fun run starts at 11. Register at the event, or pre-register at www.unitedwaydenver.org. For more information, call 303-433-8383.
