Join us on Thanksgiving morning for the FIRST EVER Cambridge Thanksgiving Turkey Trot 5k.  This will be a morning of fun, community fellowship, and exercise! This fast and scenic course will start at the old brick Coila Church on State Route 372, and head towards the village.  You will get to run along the cobblestones of Coila Road, through portions of downtown, and by the old Cambridge Hotel before heading back down main street and finishing at The Coila Church, where snacks and beverages will be handed out as you finish, along with official finish photos and finisher goodies!  Course maps will be provided at check-in, route will be clearly marked and controlled by law enforcement to ensure safety.

All proceeds and donations will go directly to the Cambridge Food Pantry!  Free race swag is guaranteed for the first 75 registrants, and for the first 15 donors (over $20).  Please consider bringing cans, pantry items, and other non-perishable food goods to the race!  Donation bins supporting the food pantry will be provided for those who wish to contribute.

Packet pickup will be held on the MORNING of the race (Thursday, Nov 24) from 7:00-8:00.  Any participant not checked in by 8:10 will be considered a "no-show" and refunds will not be issued.  Family members may complete packet pickup/registration for their immediate family members.  While we may have limited day-of registration available, we ask that you register as far in advance as possible to assist the event go smoothly.
