Flying Flamingos invite area residents to join them for annual Turkey Trot

November 19, 2012
The OBSERVER

Looking for something fun to do Thanksgiving morning before you eat that big turkey dinner? Are you planning to participate in the Turkey Trot run in Buffalo that day? The Flying Flamingos invite local residents to join the flock and travel in style.

The Flying Flamingos are a group of men and women who participate in the Turkey Trot run in Buffalo every Thanksgiving morning. Dressed in pink and wearing flamingo hats, the Flamingos are a perennial crowd favorite as they make their way along the race course. In addition to running the race for fun, the Flamingos are raising money for the "Dream On" Kathy Seastedt Memorial Fund, which assists people with disabilities who receive support from The Resource Center.

The Flying Flamingos invite area residents to join them for what promises to be a fun morning. Although registration for the Turkey Trot has closed, people still can dress in pink and run along with the rest of the flock. Participants needn't be serious runners the Flamingos jog at a leisurely pace as they make their way along the 8-kilometer (5-mile) course. People who already are entered in the Turkey Trot are invited to ride the bus as well, and the Flamingos can pick up their race packet Wednesday in order to save them time.

The Flamingos have seats available on the motorcoach that will transport them from Fredonia to Buffalo and back on Thanksgiving morning. The bus will depart at about 6:15 a.m. from in front of Chautauqua Health and Fitness at the D&F Plaza, and the bus will stop at the McKinley Mall to pick up people. The bus should be back in Fredonia by noon.

The cost to ride the bus is $15 per person.
