About the Event
Join us for the 9th Annual Beat the Bird 5K Lil' Drumstick 1K on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22, 2018. This year’s race will raise money for a donation to the Renewal Food Bank in Bellevue. The course starts at the Kelsey Creek Shopping Center in the Lake Hills area of east Bellevue. The course is flat, fast and family friendly as 90% of the course runs away from traffic on the wide-open carriage trail path that winds through the Lake Hills Greenbelt Park. Earn your turkey dinner Thanksgiving day by helping us raise money to feed those who are less fortunate.
