Happy Thanks-Swimming! Come Swim a 5K on Thanksgiving Day

Via a November 9 e-newsletter from the Minneapolis Park and Rec Board:

Why run a Thanksgiving 5K when you can swim it?! Join us for Happy Thanks-Swimming 5K, a new event being held at the Phillips Aquatics Center on Thanksgiving Day. It is all about swimming, fun and putting a new spin on the Turkey Day 5K.

  • Participants will choose a lane that best fits their timing needs and swim 75 x 75s.
  • All abilities are welcome, and you can swim as much or as little as you wish.
  • Cost: $40 ($5 discount for Open Swim Club members)

Take Thanksgiving by the drumstick and do a 5K in the water. It's a great way to stay fit this fall and kick off a healthy holiday season!
