Coming October 9, 2017. Celebrate Thanksgiving next month with the Granville Island Turkey Trot. Yes, next month, the second Monday of October to be exact, is when Thanksgiving is celebrated in Canada and like celebrations here in the United States, it celebrates the harvest and other blessings of the past year with family feasts including turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie. So to work off those anticipated calories of the day, join in on this 10K run that starts and finishes at Granville Island in Vancouver, in beautiful British Columbia. The course is a fast one and takes you along the scenic Seawall, across the Burrard Bridge, and through several parks. Post race, enjoy live entertainment, prizes, awards, and of course, there’s the delicious food at the shops at the Granville Island Public Market (like a well deserved treat from Lee’s Donuts or a tasty soup from the Stock Market)!
