The Seniors First Turkey Trot 5k is one of the oldest and largest 5k fun runs held in Orlando each year. Over 5,000 runners, walkers and spectators, many in holiday themed costumes, will line the streets around beautiful Lake Eola bright and early Thanksgiving morning in a race to end senior hunger. Be there at 7am for the costume and turkey call contests, join friends and family for the race at 8am, then stay for the kids Tot Trot! All proceeds benefit in home care and nutrition programs Like Meals on Wheels and go directly to help senior citizens in our community.
