Turkey Trot 2013

Third Annual Phoenicia Turkey Trot to benefit Pine Hill Community Center
Phoenicia, New York is hosting the Third Annual Phoenicia Turkey Trot, Saturday, November 30th, 10:00 a.m. The 2.4 mile run/walk will benefit the Pine Hill Community Center, which provides community-building activities nurturing creativity and life-long growth for people of the Central Catskills. Monies will be used for a roof replacement project. 

The race will wind through scenic Phoenicia. A free Tot Trot for kids five and under will precede the main race at 9:30 a.m.  Last year’s event grew to 400 runners/wobblers from the 300 participants in its inaugural year.

The run is open to the entire community, elite and novice runners alike. Kick off this family fun event benefiting this worthy cause, and while you are at it, work off your Thanksgiving feast.

Registration is $10 for individuals or $20 per family. Groups are encouraged to run as well. Prizes will be awarded to the fastest female and male racers; and a special cash prize will be given to the team with the most runners.   Free Turkey Trot tee shirts go to the first 50 registrants.
