Turkeys on the Trail

Team Infinit athlete and Ultra-marathon phenom Jay Kinsella and his wife Jessica have put in hours of work to host their 2nd annual Turkeys on the Trail event - a fundraising run to help their local food bank. We are honoured to be apart of their event this year! This years event will take place on Sunday, December 11th. Find out more about Turkeys on the Trail below! 

"Turkeys on the Trail started as an idea to help our local food bank to feed families at Christmas. In one year alone, Turkeys on the Trail has grown exponentially. In December 2015, we had 108 participants come out and a little over a dozen volunteers. This year, with the need and expectations so much higher, we challenged ourselves to grow. To do that, we needed great companies to help sponsor our event. We are proud to say that Darcy Haggith and the Infinit team have stepped up to assist us. Our two aid stations will be fully stocked with Infinit, and we will have a vendor booth manned by Jay that will be handing out drink samples and answering questions about Infinit Nutrition. We are also awarding one lucky participant a Pro-Nutritional Consult! We feel so lucky to have found a product that works for us, and we are proud to share that with our fellow runners and community. It helped us achieve our dreams of going big; in this case competing and winning the 2016 Tahoe 200 Endurance Run. We have our sights set on even more exciting races for 2017, and we hope our participants will enjoy the Infinit as much as we do! Thank you to Darcy Haggith and the Infinit Team for aiding our charity run and for sponsoring Jay Kinsella to represent your brand!

Thanks to the generosity of sponsors like Infinit, Fast Trax Run & Ski Shop, Track ‘N Trail and Albert’s Family Restaurant; we have grown to nearly 300 participants and 50 volunteers in the second year of this event! The course has become more trail, technical and fun! We will have fruit, coffee, juice and food at the finish. We will also have a “mini-market” with approximately a dozen vendors from the community who will showcase their business and products. We are also partnering this year with BeaverTails food truck, who will be on site to serve up delicious pastries and poutine, and the cost? ONE FROZEN TURKEY or equivalent value in non-perishable food items. We will have draw prizes, a small silent auction, and a raffle draw for 3 entries into Destination Trail Race: Orcas Island 50 miler, Marathon and Half Marathon. There really will be something for EVERYBODY!

We look forward to seeing everything come together and pulling off a great day! Thank you all, runners and sponsors for your support!" - Jessica.
