Turkey Trot – Virtual 5K to Support the Cazenovia HS Class of 2023
November 25 - November 29
Looking for info on the 2020 Turkey Trot? New route for this year!
Each fall, Cazenovia High School classes typically sponsor a “Pumpkin Run 5K” fundraiser and the Cazenovia Preservation Foundation organizes a “Turkey Trot” on its Gorge Trail on Thanksgiving morning. Due to the ongoing pandemic, neither group was able to sponsor its traditional event in 2020. For this year, we have combined the two events into a virtual run/walk over a new route that incorporates village sidewalks and CPF trails.
The event is a fundraiser for the Cazenovia HIgh School Class of 2023 (whose other fundraisers for future events such as their Junior Prom and Senior Ball were also cancelled this year) and we hope to raise awareness about the important work that CPF does in our community. In addition, 10% of all proceeds will be donated to CazCares to help families in need during this holiday season.
The 5K virtual run/walk can be completed any time from November 25 to 29. The course begins and ends along the historic Village Green in front of Cazenovia High School (31 Emory Ave) and winds through the village, passing numerous historical, cultural and natural highlights along the way. An optional quiz based on the landmarks can be submitted electronically after you finish to be eligible for prizes. Runners may also self-report their times after their run for our virtual leaderboard.
We hope to return to our normal slate of events in 2021, but hope you will have fun participating in our special combined event this year!
