The holidays are coming! Join Tri To Finish for the 5th Annual St Peter Turkey Trot on a flat, country road course in Hemlock to prepare you for the feasting that is to come!
The Turkey Trot consists of USATF Sanctioned 10k and 5k races that originated as a way to encourage student participation in Kids on the Run. Already successful in its own right, the event blossomed with the addition of a 10k course and local sponsors the likes of Kevin Zedaker Farm Bureau Insurance, Thrivent Financial, Jacques Orchard and Your Favorite Cake coming on to help make this a community event. St Peter School and Tri To Finish will once again be pulling out all the stops to make this a must-do event for the Great Lakes Bay Region!
All pre and post race activities (i.e., Registration, Packet Pickup, Announcements, Athlete Meeting, Volunteer Assignments, Awards, Snacks, etc.) will take place in the comfort and warmth of St Peter Lutheran School’s gymnasium! Don’t worry about the weather!
New this year is the "Train To Finish" program with the YMCA of Saginaw! For details that include special membership pricing at the YMCA, visit the Train To Finish website HERE!
All proceeds from this event will benefit the students at St Peter Lutheran School, a 501c3 charitable organization.
