Turkey Trot FAQs – part two

Few more questions, I should’ve included in my Turkey Trot FAQs I posted on Monday night:

1. Are there shuttle buses again this year? Yes, there are shuttle buses that will be running from the Waldameer parking lot to Beach No. 1.

2. Are there water stops on the course? No, please plan accordingly. There will be water at the finish line. And, of course, full refreshments at the post-race party location at Rainbow Gardens at Waldameer.

3. Are there going to be feathers on the course for doorprizes again? No feathers, but there will be “light sabers” — if you grab one & bring it back, you get a special prize!

4. Where will awards be distributed? Rainbow Gardens, about 1/2 hour after the race finishes.

Also….this note was posted by the ERC re. parking:

No parking along the side of any of the park roadways. The inbound lanes need to be kept free of parked cars because of the change to a two-way traffic pattern, and the outbound lanes need to be kept clear of parked cars so the runners have as wide a course as possible on the closed roadway. Tickets will be issued, so people should plan to park in the designated parking lots and at the Tom Ridge Center and in the Waldameer lots, and NOT ALONG THE ROADWAYS! PLEASE.

    In your last segment, tips from Sadie, the ranger stated you could park along the road as long as you were off the roads, please get the facts straight and make up your mind
