VIRGINIA BEACH – June 9, 2016 – J&A Racing, a nationally recognized race management company based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and the Blue Talon Bistro in Williamsburg, Virginia are pleased to announce that they have partnered together to host the Blue Talon Bistro Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving morning, November 24, 2016. With an 8:30AM start, this festive event includes a course that winds through acres of history and beauty in Colonial Williamsburg and through the world-class campus of the second oldest college in the nation, the College of William & Mary. This nine year old tradition which hosts over 2500 participants will provide an excellent opportunity for families to come out and kick off their Thanksgiving Day with fun, fitness and festivity while also supporting the Literacy for Life, a charity that provides literacy services to help community members function more effectively.
“We are extremely honored that we were chosen by the Blue Talon Bistro as the race management team for this annual Thanksgiving Day tradition in historic Williamsburg,” said co-race director Jerry Frostick.“ The Blue Talon Bistro Turkey Trot 5K is an awesome event with a beautiful course and offers a great opportunity for families to come out and kick off their Thanksgiving Day. We look forward to being a part of an already very successful event!”
“We couldn’t be more excited to team up with J & A Racing because they represent the type of future we see for the Blue Talon Bistro Turkey Trot 5K,” says David Everett, owner of the Blue Talon Bistro. ” We were looking for an organization who shared our vision and could take us to the next level, and we found that in the J& A Racing team. What they bring to the table will make the runner’s experience even more memorable while raising some money for charity. I’m not sure we could ask for much more on thanksgiving morning.”
