Posted: Friday, November 6, 2015

Children served by Pathfinder Kids Kampus along with representatives from host sponsor, McDonald’s of Huntington, and lead sponsor, PNC Bank posed for a photo to unveil the shirt for the 11th annual Turkey Trot 5K run/walk and one-mile Turkey Trail to be held on Thanksgiving morning, November 26.

Online registration is available at www.kidskampus.org. The first 1,000 who register will receive a high quality, 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 2015 Turkey Trot from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25 at Pathfinder Kids Kampus, 435 Campus Street. This will allow for runners/walkers to pick up shirts, race numbers and chips prior to race day, if they choose.

Last year, 840 people participated in the Turkey Trot and raised more than $21,000 in support of the programs and services offered to the children and families served by Pathfinder Kids Kampus. The 2015 event begins with registration from 7 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. Ronald McDonald will again start the races.

The cost for the event is $20 for those who pre-register online or via mail by November 24, and $25 for those who register on November 25 and the day of the race. Shirts are available for the first 1,000 registrants. Early registration is encouraged for choice of shirt size. An Outta Town Turkey Trot is also available for those who will not be in the area on Thanksgiving, but still wish to support the event and get a race shirt. Visit www.kidskampus.org for full details or to register. Additional registration forms are available at Pathfinder Kids Kampus, 435 Campus Street, and Pathfinder Services North Campus, 2824 Theater Avenue.
