Welcome to the most exciting event of the year - the Prediction Run! Now, listen up because this is something you don't want to miss out on. Here's the deal: All runners, no matter how fast or slow, have a chance to win a turkey. Yes, you heard that right, a turkey! How? It's simple. Just sign up, predict your race finish time, and run those exact minutes on race day. It's like a piece of cake, or should I say, a juicy turkey! Now, hold your horses because there's more. We're giving away a whopping 50 turkeys at the event! That's right, 25 participants in each event who finish closest to their predicted time will walk away with a full-sized turkey. Fantastic, right? Just remember, it's one turkey per family, and you gotta be there to claim your prize. We can't hold those frozen birds or deliver them to your door. Now, listen closely to the special rules. No watches or pacesetters allowed. We want this to be an exciting challenge for everyone. And guess what? We won't even provide mile markers or give you any splits. It's all about testing your prediction skills and having a blast! Race day is going to be a whirlwind of fun. Registration and bib pickup will start from 8:00am to 9:15 am, so make sure you're on time. The race will kick off at 9:30 am sharp, so get those running shoes ready! We've picked the perfect location for this thrilling event. It's gonna be held at the Whitnall Park Beer Garden, 8831 N Root River Parkway, Franklin, WI. Gorgeous scenery and great vibes, what more could you ask for? And hey, we've got your refreshments covered too. We'll be serving hot cider, hot chocolate, coffee, water, soda, and some delicious snacks to keep you fueled and hydrated throughout the day. Oh, and did we mention that families are absolutely welcome? That's right, bring the whole gang along! Even walkers can join in the excitement for the 2-mile run. But wait, there's more. We're partnering with Hunger Task Force, a charity supporting local food pantries. We'll be accepting non-perishable food donations at the event, so let's come together and make a difference during this holiday season. Before I let you go and dive into the action, please take a moment to review the Badgerland Striders Race Policies and Guidelines. We want to make sure everyone has a safe and enjoyable experience, so make sure you're familiar with the rules. Alright, what are you waiting for? It's time to sign up and secure your spot in the Prediction Run. Get ready for an epic adventure filled with prizes, laughter, and maybe even a Thanksgiving feast! See you there. P.S. Turkey-loving friends, make sure you spread the word and invite everyone you know. Let's make this the best event ever!
