ACWORTH, Ga. -- It's time to talk turkey in Acworth.
Registration is now open for the city's third annual Turkey Chase 5K Fun Run & 2K Walk, which will take place on Saturday, Nov. 19 on Main Street.
Participants are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to the race. Last year, 2,000 items were gathered up for the Tackle Hunger program, and organizers hope to collect even more food this year. Everyone who brings an item will receive a race number and long-sleeve Turkey Chase T-shirt.
The 5K will begin at 9 a.m., with the 2K walk scheduled to start at 9:15. A "Little Pilgrim Trot" for children will be off and running at 10 a.m. Top finishers in the 5K will receive trophies, while special awards will go to the first three finishers in each age group.
