Friday, November 24, 2023

This is a low-key event held each year the day after Thanksgiving, giving everyone a chance to work off some of the previous day’s gluttony. Relay teams consist of three people, and anyone who can ski is sure to enjoy this great event! You are encouraged to wear silly costumes and come up with goofy team names.

Registration is now open for the 60th Annual Turkey Day Relays, presented by Beaver Sports. All registration is online.
