Runners Edge and Sayville and Smithtown Running Companies are teaming up with Island Harvest Food Bank for a fun run and turkey drive. Please make a turkey donation and join us for a four (4) mile Prediction Run, on the trails of Babylon, where you can win by guessing your finish time most accurately, not by running the fastest. Awards to the top ten predictors.

Join us for post run refreshments back at the Hibernian Hall.

COST: FREE TO ALL RUNNERS AND WALKERS WHO BRING A FROZEN TURKEY. IF YOU CAN’T BRING FOOD, A MONETARY DONATION IS REQUESTED (MINIMUM $20). FREE PINT OF CRAFT BEER AND HOAGIES TO ALL DONORS!

DONATION DETAILS: Frozen turkeys are needed, but other food items will gladly be accepted. We’ll have a truck on hand at the Hibernian Hall to collect frozen turkeys for Island Harvest Food Bank. THE CHALLENGE IS TO FILL THAT TRUCK!
