Pounding pavement at the Annual Turkey Trot

Last year’s Turkey Trot 5K race and one-mile fun run/walk brought out more than 600 runners to support the Greenwich Alliance for Education. The photo captures the start of the one-mile fun run as runners begin the race on Arch Street.

After you gobble up mashed potatoes and stuffing this year, burn off those Thanksgiving pounds on Nov. 30 with the Greenwich Alliance for Education’s third annual Turkey Trot, to be held in Bruce Park.

Registrants will be able to choose from either a 5K race or a non-competitive one-mile run/walk. Both will begin and end at the Arch Street Teen Center at 100 Arch Street. The one-mile fun run/walk will start at 9:30 a.m. and the 5K will start at 10 a.m.

All proceeds from the Turkey Trot will directly benefit the Greenwich Alliance for Education’s programs that aim to foster educational success for Greenwich Public School students.

Those interested can register online via the Greenwich Alliance’s website, greenwichalliance.org. Prior to race day, registration cost is $25 per adult and $10 per child, age 14 and under. The first 100 registrants receive a $5 gift card from Garden Catering. Race-day registration will take place inside the Arch Street Teen Center from 8 to 9 a.m. The cost race day will be $30 per adult and $15 per child age 14 and under. T-shirts and goody bags with offers from local merchants will be given to runners who register by Nov. 22 and to all other registrants while supplies last.

Pre-registered runners can pick up bibs, T-shirts, and goody bags on Friday, Nov. 29 at the Arch Street Teen Center from 2 to 5 p.m.

Awards will be presented to the top three overall male and female 5K winners and the top three male and female finishers in 10 age categories, from 10-and-under to 70-plus. All 16-and-under one-mile finishers will receive medals. Refreshments will be provided by PepsiCo and the Upper Crust Bagel Company.
