The wildly popular Thanksgiving Day Trot Against Poverty 5K presented by George E. Warren Corporation is back for its 12th year. This professionally-timed race is for runners, joggers and walkers of all ages and abilities. Trot is more than a healthy start to your holiday…it’s also an unforgettable way to give back while you give thanks!
