The Turkey Trot is a 5 mile run (or 1 mile walk) that supports the Seton Center in Emmitsburg. The challenging run is through the countryside against the backdrop of the beautiful Catoctin Mountains and is open to all ages, while the walk is an invigorating stroll along the nature trail of our Community Park.
Winners of the 5 mile race will receive awards in three age categories: Youth, Adult, and Senior, with awards also given out for best Thanksgiving Day costume and best dressed dog. Refreshments and a light breakfast will be provided to all registered runners, and music and entertainment will be provided by DJ Fire.
The cost for the run is $25 per person (which includes a Turkey Trot Tee-Shirt!), while the cost for the walk is $5 per person (registration can also be done in person at the event using cash only from 7:00 am – 8:00 am).
Run or walk, make your plans to come on by Thanksgiving Day to have some fun, breathe some fresh air, and burn off some calories. We hope to see you at there!
