The 8th annual “Burn the Bird” is going virtual in 2020!!!
For the safety of everyone, Burn the Bird will be a virtual run/walk this Thanksgiving. We still want you to get some fresh air and a good burn before sitting down for a big Thanksgiving dinner, so choose a race, choose your route, and get going. Sign up for either the 5K run/walk or the 10K run and you will have the option of submitting your race time to be included in the results.
The FM 'Burn the Bird' Thanksgiving Day 5K & 10K is brought to you by The YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties & SoleMOTION Race Management. A portion of the profits support the YMCA LIVESTRONG Training Program for Cancer Survivors.
