The Scot Trot takes places on the beautiful Alma College campus in conjunction with the Homecoming festivities. The race starts and finishes at the Heritage Center parking lot on the Alma College campus. The course winds through the streets of Alma, Michigan and crosses the Pine River on the newly constructed River Walk footbridge. The starting gun fires at 9:00 am giving the participants lots of time to finish before the big homecoming parade and football game. Your entry fee covers the cost of a long-sleeved "dri-fit" t-shirt and your chance to win prizes associated with your sex and age group. Dogs are definitely welcome and a special prize will be awarded to the best-dressed k-9. A $5 discount will be given to current Alma College Students.
