It's time to run like a turkey at the annual CBC Edmonton Dudley Run.

The five-kilometre run through the river valley is part of our annual Turkey Drive campaign and pays homage to Dudley, the fundraiser's feathered mascot.

Join Edmonton AM fitness columnist Chris Tse Tuesday at 11 a.m. for a trot on the winter trails and help support the Edmonton Food Bank.

The run is accessible for all levels, but be sure to bundle up for the winter temperatures in Edmonton. And we will help you out. All participating runners will get a CBC Edmonton tuque.

Spots are limited so be sure to sign up ASAP. Runners are asked to meet at the CBC Edmonton studios at 11 a.m.

Even Dudley will be there to dash across the finish line.
