Turkey Run goes virtual

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

This year's Turkey Run will be looking a little different due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Quincy YMCA officials said they're taking this year's run virtual.

They said participants will do their own run November 26th through November 29th and use an app to track their distance and time to upload on their results page.

"When you bring close to 3,000 people together it's very hard to do the social distancing," Wellness and Membership director Johanna Voss said. "So we felt in order to keep that tradition alive it was going to best to make it a virtual event in the hopes that people will still get together as families and run together outside in their neighborhood and in their towns."

For more information on the event or to register, visit the YMCA's website or call the Welcome Desk at 217-222-9622.
