Condensed Turkey Soup in a can? No way! The title here refers to one of the longest-running annual orienteering events in Ontario. Started way back around 1982 when a few friends from both the Ukrainian Orienteering Club and the Toronto Orienteering Club (UKR and TOC ... TURK, get it?) joined together to hold a fall event around Thanksgiving. If you connect the dots, you'll understand how the name Turkey Trot came to be.
This year's edition, let's call it the 41st annual Turkey Trot (a great approximation, but the spirit of the fact is correct), will be condensed into a single day. The day will feature 3 different difficulty courses, at beautiful Albion Hills Conservation area in Bolton
Your hosts, as usual, are both the Ukrainian and Toronto Orienteering Clubs. Come one, come all, gobble, gobble!
P.S. Did I forget to mention there will be the usual excellent selection of PRIZES for the winners and as draw prizes. Nice!
Photos are now up! See them HERE.
