The eighth annual Greenwich Alliance for Education’s Turkey Trot will be held on Saturday, November 24.
Join over 2,000 spectators and participants in the perfect post-Thanksgiving family activity.
Registrants will be able to choose from either a 5K race or a non-competitive 1 mile run/walk. Both races begin and end at the Arch Street Teen Center at 100 Arch Street and pace through the beautiful flat roads of Bruce Park. We are grateful to our top race sponsors: Cadillac of Greenwich, Hospital for Special Surgery, General Atlantic and The Richmond Group. The Cadillac of Greenwich 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk starts at 9:30am followed by the HSS 5K at 10:00am.
Warm-up and stretching will be organized prior to the 1 Mile start at 9:00am.
All proceeds from the Turkey Trot will directly benefit the Greenwich Alliance for Education’s programs. The Greenwich Alliance funds innovation, expands opportunities, and inspires teachers to foster educational success for Greenwich Public School students.
