Phoenicia Turkey Trot - November 11th

Get set Woodland Valley runners!

Many valley residents participate in this great event every year. I will try and remind you again as the day gets closer but this year's Phoenicia Turkey Trot will be on November 11th. It will benefit the STS theatre. Here are the details.

Fourth Annual Phoenicia Turkey Trot to benefit STS Playhouse
And Premiers a Prize-Winning Costume Contest

Phoenicia, New York is hosting the Fourth Annual Phoenicia Turkey Trot, Saturday, November 29th, 10:00 a.m. The 2.4 mile run/walk will benefit Phoenicia’s STS Playhouse, and this year includes a Costume Contest.  Founded in 1976, STS Playhouse has staged over 70 diverse full-scale productions with casts that have included professionals to local community members stepping onto the stage for the first time.  Race proceeds will be used for capital improvements to its Theater.

The Turkey Trot winds 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 turned out 300 runners/wobblers. 

The run is open to all, elite and novice runners alike. In years past race participants have enjoyed this family fun event which benefits a local and worthy cause, and it has become a beloved activity for the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend.

Registration is $10 for individuals or $20 per family. Groups are encouraged to run as well. Several prizes will be awarded including to the fastest female and male racers and for best costumes worn by racers.  Free Turkey Trot tee shirts go to the first 100 registrants.

Registration and sign-in begins at 8:00am - 9:45am at the Parish Hall, Main Street, Phoenicia (across the street from St Francis de Sales Church).
