As people in the Capital Region prepare for Thanksgiving, anyone thinking of running local Turkey Trots should prepare for potential record breaking low temperatures.
Race organizers for the Troy Turkey say there are ways to keep yourself safe, and still have fun. Some good tips include dressing in layers, covering any extremities, and making sure to get warmed up after you’re done running. At the Troy Turkey Troy there will be warming stations at the beginning and end of the race for runners, and warm tents for volunteers.
These tips are also good for anyone who may not be running, but are still planning to spend time outside.
