Turkey “Run for Fun” History – On Thanksgiving morning 1976, John Keeshan got together with some friends to engage in a morning run from the Village Green, to the Lighthouse, and then back again. This developed into a yearly tradition, which eventually became the annual event that is now under the direction of the East Hampton Town, Recreation Department.
At the request of The Montauk Food Pantry, all proceeds from the race and donations benefit The Montauk Food Pantry, The East Hampton Food Pantry, The Springs Food Pantry, and Meals on Wheels.
