Turk-EA Trot

East Aurora, NY

Please join us on Thanksgiving morning for the 5th Annual Turk-EA Trot in beautiful East Aurora, New York! This year we are excited to announce that we have added professional timing and finish line services by Race Management Solutions, along with a great new 5K course. The USATF-sanctioned event will be held Thanksgiving morning, starting and ending at the Boys & Girls Club of East Aurora. There will be awards for age-groups, masters, top finishers and BEST COSTUME!  Everyone is encouraged to donate a non-perishable food item, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of East Aurora.

*Additionally, the Parkdale PTO will have a collection box for Got Sneakers?, a fundraiser in which the school receives a donation for each pair of used sneakers collected.  Feel free to bring an old pair along with you!

The race will start and finish at the Boys & Girls Club of East Aurora. Per the facility policy, participants are asked to wear a mask while inside the building regardless of vaccination status.
