Posted: Thursday, October 11, 2018

Pathfinder Kids Kampus will hold the 14th Annual Turkey Trot 5K run/walk and one-mile Turkey Trail on Thanksgiving morning, November 22. The event sponsored by Host Sponsor, McDonald’s of Huntington will start at 8 a.m. Proceeds from the event benefit the children and families served by Pathfinder Kids Kampus.

Online registration is available at www.kidskampus.org. The first 1,100 who register will receive a long sleeve technical shirt. The event will be chip timed again by e-Runner Timing and Results. There will be an optional early packet pick up for those pre-registered for the 2018 Turkey Trot from 12 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, November 21 at Pathfinder Services, 2824 Theater Avenue. This will allow for runners/walkers to pick up shirts, race numbers and chips prior to race day, if they choose. Please note the new location and times for early packet pick up.

Last year, 1,112 people participated in the Turkey Trot and raised more than $30,000 in support of the programs and services offered to the children and families served by Pathfinder Kids Kampus. The 2018 event begins with registration from 7 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. Thanksgiving morning, followed by the 5K at 8 a.m. and one-mile Turkey Trail at 8:30 a.m.

The cost for the event is $20 for those who pre-register online or via mail by November 20 and $25 for those who register on November 21 and the day of the race.
