The Zeeland Turkey Trot 8k Committee took to the race route after packet pickup tonight to check road conditions for tomorrow morning.


The bridge and a few other spots are slippery, so please use caution.

The city will be out in the morning to salt the roads if needed, but as always, please be careful as there may be some slick spots.

We ❤️ our runners and walkers and we want everyone to have a fun and safe run/walk tomorrow.

See you in the morning.
