St. Benedict School Fifth Annual Turkey Trot 5K Run

Thanksgiving Day Thursday Nov. 26th Cambridge, OH 43725 US Directions

It is with much sadness that we are announcing that the 2020 Annual Turkey Trot must now be virtual only. We did not come to this decision lightly and truly thought we’d be able to proceed. Despite having a safety plan in place, we have determined that the risk an in-person event would pose to our families, friends, and community is just too great considering the very recent and unprecedented increase in Covid-19 cases both locally and state-wide.  As originally stated, all registrations will automatically be converted to the virtual event. 

Race packets/t-shirts: May be picked up at the school office on weekdays beginning Tuesday, Dec. 1 between 7:30am-3:30pm. If you are not local, we’ll be happy to mail yours to you. Let us know if you need other arrangements to be made. 

Extra t-shirts: If you registered or are registering after the cut-off date, please see the contact info below, and we’ll do our best to accommodate you. This will remain first come, first served. 

Virtual registration will still continue through November 26

Please follow us here for further updates. All registrants will be automatically entered into drawings for MANY awesome giveaways! Stay tuned! 

THANK YOU for your continued support and understanding, and we hope to see you next year! Happy Thanksgiving and stay healthy!
