BEDFORD, N.Y. – Bedford’s annual “Turkey Trot” 5K race is Saturday, and police are asking drivers to avoid certain roads for the safety of runners and others.
Bedford police are asking drivers to stay away from Greenwich Road and Routes 22, 172, and 121 by the Village Green between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m.
The race, which bills itself as the “hardest 5K in New York” starts at 9 a.m., according to the organizers’ website.
The course begins at the Bedford Village Elementary School on Court Street. The half-way point is just past the top of Indian Hill Road – not, the website said, for the “faint of heart.” It finishes up at Bedford Village Memorial Park.
Sponsoring the event are: Lloyd Bedford Cox Insurance, Rippowan Cisque School, Danziger and Markhoff, Landmark Preschool, Douglas Elliman Real Estate, Northern Westchester Hospital, Small Joys gift store, Myong Gourmet, and Mount Kisco Sports.
