Skagit Running Company will again be hosting the annual Thanksgiving morning fun run on Thursday,
November 27. We will meet at the store at 8 am and start the run around 8:10 - 8:15 am. The main course will be the flat Dike
Road/Britt Slough loop (approximately 5.5 miles), but shorter options will also available if anyone is interested. We usually get a big turn out

entry fee. Just show up! Snacks and refreshments will be available inside the store after the run.
