About the Event

Join Fleet Feet West Lafayette and our sponsors for a timed 5K run/walk or a 1 mile walk on Thanksgiving Day.   There is NO REGISTRATION FEE for the event.  It is our way of saying thanks and giving back to you, the running/walking community, as well as giving us all the opportunity to help those in our community who are in need of food.  

Please donate non-perishable food items or make a monetary donation to the Food Finders Food Bank.  Donations can be dropped off at the store during business hours.

  • Please note:  When registering for the 5K, you have the option to be chip timed or not.  For those wanting to be timed, please select 5K-Timed Race and you will receive a bib with a chip.  For those not concerned about a race time, please select 5K-Untimed and you will receive a bib without a chip.  By selecting this option, you can help us control costs for producing the race, which will provide more money to Food Finders.
