The Zack's Place Turkey Trot, a 5K run and walk held on Thanksgiving Day, was first established in 2007, and has become a dependable annual fundraiser.  Our first run saw almost 200 people join us; in 2021, we had over 1,500 and raised $94,000. All of the proceeds are dedicated to our operational costs.

 

On Thanksgiving Day whether you are in Woodstock, surrounding towns, other states, or even beyond, we are hoping to see your pictures or find you walking or running in the annual Zack's Place 5K Turkey Trot, which has a virtual option. This year our in-person event is starting at the Elementary School as it did in years past. The weather will determine if the registration is indoors or outdoors.

 

Families traditionally run together as college students and relatives gather for the Thanksgiving celebration. Grandparents and young children in carriages participate as walkers and dogs join in. However we also have "satellite participants" who cannot be in Woodstock but who run wherever they are: Hawaii, Italy, New York City, etc. This is indeed a day of thanks where individuals help support our enrichment center and give thanks for their own gifts at the same time. Please do join us this year.

 

The event is on Thursday the 24th of November at 10AM. Registration costs $35.00 for all pre-registered participants, before 12 Noon on the 23rd of November.

The race begins in front of the Woodstock Elementary School at 10:00 AM, and this year. The run meanders through the historic Village of Woodstock, then on towards Billings Farm, around Mountain Avenue, around The Town Green, and ending at the start line.

 

Please note that you can pick up race packets on Wednesday the 23rd of November between 3-5:00PM at Woodstock Elementary School.

Registration on race day is at Woodstock Elementary School. The late registration price is $40.00

BE SURE TO REGISTER BETWEEN 8:00am AND 9:30am SO THE RACE CAN BEGIN ON TIME! WE WILL HAVE LIVE MUSIC "JOHN SNYDER'S BAND!"
