To celebrate National Running Day & Global Running Day, The Goose Chase has partnered with The Turkey Trot to create a kid’s clinic to celebrate and educate!! The purpose of the clinic is to educate our kids about nutrition, stretching, paces, preventative maintenance, drills and strength while also incorporating fun and games! The clinic will be held at Kermit Tipton Stadium where we will have a team set up at different stations that will share their knowledge about a healthier lifestyle. Lunch will be provided and each child will receive a t-shirt as well.
