Raceday tomorrow is coming soon and weather is forecast for the mid 40โ€™s (those of you who remember last year will be very happy to hear this!). Just some last minute reminders:
If you have not yet registered we will be having walk in registrations starting at 7:30am. You can download and complete the registration form from the Pretzel City website to save some time. We accept cash, check, or credit card.

If you have pre registered but have not picked up your race packet yet, we will be handing these out also starting at 7:30 am.

Please do not park in Wawa or Sheetz lots. We will have people assistingโ€”look for the orange vests! While the race starts at 9am (fun run at 8:30), plan enough time to park and make it to the start at the Quarry in back of Wawa by start time!

Hope to see everyone out tomorrow!

If you have any questions about our run, please read this review from a gentleman who is involved with thousands of races a year. He knows his stuff!

"11/28/19 Wyomissing, PA โ€“ Flippinโ€™ Fun 5k Turkey Run this popular event always draws 500-600 runners to one of the prettier areas of Reading to run. While it lists a Wyomissing address, it is actually at the Quarry soccer fields right behind the Shillington WAWA. With the same directors for several years, it is quite well organized. While the start area is narrow, that will be mitigated by Pretzel City Sportโ€™s chip timing. Youโ€™ll still want to get toward the front if youโ€™re running for an award so you can get into your racing โ€œstrideโ€ quicker but all awards other than the top M and F will be based on net chip time. 5 year age groups from 9 & under to 70+. A REALLY nice event."

On-site registration starts at 7:30 tomorrow morning! We can't wait to spend our Thanksgiving with YOU!

We have TWO course options ready for race day, depending on the weather this week. Our first option will have more distance in the enchanted forest and have a short, grass-area crossing. If the ground is too soft on race day, we'll use the other option with more paved/gravel surface.
