Description

Hi Everyone,

Please note that you can pick up race packets on the 23rd of November between 3-5:30P at Zack's Place 73 Central Street, Woodstock, VT 05091

Registration on race day is at the  Woodstock Elementary School. WE WILL HAVE LIVE MUSIC "JOHN SNYDER'S BAND!" BE SURE TO REGISTER BETWEEN 8:00a AND 9:30a SO THE RACE CAN BEGIN ON TIME!

ALSO PLEASE WEAR YOUR MASK IN THE REGISTRATION AREA. WE WILL BE HANDING OUT FACE SHIELDS TO ANYONE THAT WANTS ONE. 

OF COURSE IF YOU ARE NOT WELL PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND FOR THE SAFETY OF EVERYONE.

Thank you for registering for this really fun family event to support Zack's Place. On Thanksgiving Day whether you are in Woodstock, the surrounding towns, Vermont, other states or beyond we are hoping to see your pictures or even see you in town walking or running the Zack's Place 5K Turkey Trot to support programs at Zack's Place. 

The Zack's Place Turkey Trot, a 5K run and walk held on Thanksgiving Day, was first established in 2007, and has become a dependable annual fundraiser ever since. In 2007, almost 200 people participated. In 2019, over 1,500 people participated and raised $80,000. All of the proceeds of the race are dedicated to our operational costs.

In years past participants would line up and register for the race they are entertained by a band on a flatbed truck. Hot coffee, tea and hot chocolate are offered. The race begins in front of the Woodstock Elementary School at 10:00 AM, with the more skilled runners in front and the rest following. The run meanders through the historic Village of Woodstock, then on towards Billings Farm, around Mountain Avenue, and back around The Town Green, ending at the starting line. An award ceremony, also with refreshments and a band, follows the race where medals are presented.

Families run together as college students and relatives gather for the Thanksgiving celebration. Grandparents and young children in carriages participate as walkers, dogs join in as well. It has become a tradition for many in the Woodstock area; however we also have "satellite participants" who cannot be in Woodstock but who run with family wherever they are: Hawaii, Italy, New York City, etc. This is indeed a day of thanks where individuals help support our enrichment center and give thanks for their own gifts at the same time.
