Turkey Trot PR

MOUNT VERNON — The 11th Annual Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk will take place on Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 26, on the campus of Mount Vernon Nazarene University. WeRunMV will be hosting this event. This event is free—instead of charging for participation, monetary and non-perishable food donations will be collected for Food For The Hungry of Knox County.

This year’s race will start at 9 a.m. and registration begins at 8 a.m. Please gather at least five minutes prior to start time. Participants can use the main entrance of the R.R. Hodges Chapel/Auditorium for parking. Restrooms and the Chapel foyer will be open to the public this year. Though masks are not required, they are encouraged.

This free event is designed for runners and walkers of all ages. This is a fun event that gives you an exciting start to your Thanksgiving Day. What better way to count your blessings than to make room for all the great food throughout the day, and donate to our beautiful community? This event is open to everyone and canines are welcome!
