Many thanks to the runners, families, friends and volunteers who came out to support the TEXAS POWER 3rd Annual Arlington Trot.
“Thanks to our kind sponsors for your generous support, you are the heart of this family friendly event” we couldn’t have done it without you!
Arlington, Texas, nestled conveniently in the heart of the Metroplex, is the proud home to the American League Texas Rangers and the beautiful Ranger’s Ballpark in Arlington, the Dallas Cowboys and the fabulous Cowboy Stadium, and the Original Six Flags Over Texas. In 2010, Arlington proudly took its place among American cities, large and small, and establish its own Thanksgiving Day tradition. Now, it’s time for the 2012 3rd Annual Arlington Turkey Trot TM. FREE Parking will again be at the ARLINGTON CONVENTION CENTER and adjacent Texas Ranger’s Lot N. Registration and the NEW Start & Finish race site are on Road to Six Flags along the entire north side of the Ranger’s Ballpark in Arlington…!!!
Turkey Trots have been a part of American Thanksgiving Day tradition dating back to 1896 with the founding of the Buffalo New York Thanksgiving Day Race (now in its 117th year!). Over the years many communities and organizations have joined in this wonderful holiday ritual, including Dallas beginning in 1968 and Fort Worth in 1982.
So, come kick-off a great Thanksgiving Day with a fun race, run, jog, walk, stroll, roll, or even crawl, …before the parades, …before the kick-offs, …and before the feasting commences (and maybe even burn off a few calories!) Be there!!!
