Community Invited to Begin Thanksgiving Holiday with a ‘Turkey Trot’

Before gathering around the dinner table with family and friends to give thanks by enjoying turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and your favorite pie, why not begin the day with a brisk run through the College of the Canyons Valencia campus? 

The College of the Canyons Athletics Department invites community members of all ages to run, walk, or jog in the eighth annual Thanksgiving Day ‘Turkey Trot’ event benefiting the college’s cross country and track & field programs.

At the event, participants will run a three-mile cross country course through the COC Valencia campus, beginning at the college’s baseball field and continuing through the campus, winding through the hills overlooking the Santa Clarita Valley, and finally finishing inside Cougar Stadium.

The event begins at 8:30 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 24. 

Registration takes place at the race start, so no pre-registration is necessary. Participants can sign-in at the track finish line on the day of the event.

An entry fee of $20 per runner includes a race T-shirt. Checks can be made payable to “COC ASG.” 

Finishing times for each participant will be announced at the end of the race. Awards will also be given to the top three men and women in each age division.
