Younce Vtipil & Baznik is proud to be a sponsor of this thanksgiving’s Skinny Turkey 5K, 10K & Half Marathon.

Event: Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, 1 Mile Run

Date: Thanksgiving Day 11/28/2019

WHERE: 2200 Wakefield Pines Drive, Raleigh, NC 27614

All events start and finish at Wakefield High School in North Raleigh.

The SKINNY TURKEY HALF MARATHON course will run through Wakefield Plantation and Wake Falls neighborhood. The course is rolling with a few hills that are sure to test your fitness. The course is very scenic, especially through the Wake Falls neighborhood.

The SKINNY TURKEY 10K will follow along part of the half-marathon course before turning around and heading back to the school. We’ll make sure to pack plenty of hills in those 6.2 miles!

The JUST THINK FIRST 5K Road Race is the major fundraiser for the Just Think First Program. The event helps fund teaching videos that tell the story of something that happened to real students who attended school at Wakefield High. Besides funding for the video projects, proceeds from the 5K race also pay for speakers and various activities planned during the school year to help encourage students to make the right choices. Scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors in the spring.
