What's the secret to eating a huge Thanksgiving dinner and not feeling weighed down? Taking part in the Port Washington Thanksgiving Day Run first!

Join hundreds of children, teens and adults from Port Washington and beyond this Thanksgiving and start your holiday celebration on the right (or left) foot. Participants will gather at the Manorhaven Park Pool on Thursday, Nov. 24, and set off at 8:30 a.m. on a five-mile course through Manorhaven, Sands Point and Port Washington North. Trophies will be awarded to the first three men and three women to complete the course, as well as the first three men and three women in each of 15 age categories and a wheelchair division.
