The need for financial support in our community continues! Please join us in raising funds to support families with financial hardships due to the economic times, but also the health of a sick child being treated at UVM Children's Hospital throughout these upcoming winter months. In light of Covid 19 still lingering in our community, and attempting to be respectful of our valued participants, we invite all runners and walkers to join us via an in-person OR virtual 5K or 10K on Thursday November 24, 2022 (Thanksgiving). The in-person race will be held at the Richmond Community Church at 8:30am. The virtual race can be done anytime on Thanksgiving Day before 8:00pm. All registration will be done virtually!
Participants are in charge of their own timing again this year, since not everyone will be in person. Remember your watches! We welcome your finish times and photos on the website afterward; completely optional. Instructions will be sent after the race. We made a point to separate the races ahead of time to help with timing accuracy.
Feel free to wear a mask for t-shirt pick up and/or the race start/finish. We respect everyone’s decision to do what feels comfortable. Please choose the virtual option if you are having any flu or covid symptoms.
Thank you again for joining us in whatever capacity you are able. Give what you can and know that your generosity will go far to meet the needs of families struggling right now!
Race Course: Out and back on Cochoran Road. Start and Finish line halfway down Farr Rd. (Behind Stone Corral Brewery).

The first 150 people to arrive at t-shirt pick up on Thanksgiving Eve will be guaranteed a 2022 Turkey Trot t-shirt. Sizes are first come, first serve.
