If you're participating in this year's Festival Foods
Turkey Trot .
you'll be starting and ending at a new location.
The annual Thanksgiving morning run and walk typically
goes through downtown La Crosse but the route is being
changed because of ongoing construction.
The new route will start at the Omni Center in Onalaska
and then make a loop through the citiy's neighborhoods
before ending back at the center.
Organizers say the new route will be a permeant change
and hopes choosing a residential setting will spark
more community interest.
Hopefully the continuity of having the race in the
same location, we're hoping that the neighbors will
come out, they'll cheer on the runners.
Year after year, we'd like them to be out there really
making this the communinty event that it is.
The festival is still looking for volunteers to help
with the event.
If you would like to sign up to volunteer or register
to participate in the race .
