Runners of All Ages Invited to Ninth Annual Thanksgiving 'Turkey Trot'

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

Participants will run a 3-mile cross country course through the Valencia campus, beginning at the baseball field and continuing through the campus, winding through the hills overlooking the Santa Clarita Valley, and finishing inside Cougar Stadium. 

The event begins at 8:30 a.m. Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 23.

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.
