Join us in the Run for the Pies!

Before settling down to eat your turkey, or prepare your house for guests this Thanksgiving, why not get a little exercise in and help the Salvation Army and Human Concern Center of Oswego NY?

The Run for the Pies, now going for 15+ years, does just that! Every Thanksgiving morning, a group of runners and walkers meet at the Oswego YMCA to do a 5k run/walk before dinner. It’s open to the public and everyone in the community is welcome to join. What began as a handful of friends running together on Thanksgiving morning has grown into a popular family and community event.

Take a Run for the Pies on Thanksgiving Morning

This community “Run/Walk for Fun” began 15+ years ago when a group of friends decided to meet at the Oswego YMCA to go for a run on Thanksgiving Day morning.  Why not get a little exercise in before eating all of that turkey, right?  So, this group of about 5 runners did this for a couple of years before they had another idea.  The runners decided to bring non-perishable items with them on their run to drop off at the Salvation Army as a donation.  Why not go for a run and give back to the community on this day of thanks?
