About This Activity

The holidays are coming! Join Tri To Finish for the 4th Annual St Peter Turkey Trot on a flat, country road course in Hemlock to prepare you for the feasting that is to come!  This year’s event is actually on Halloween Day, so participants are encouraged to wear family friendly costumes!

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 Hemlock Semi Conductor, Kevin Zedaker Farm Bureau Insurance, and Graff Chevrolet of Bay City 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!

Oh!  We failed to mention this last year, but 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!

All proceeds from this event will benefit the students at St Peter Lutheran School, a 501c3 charitable organization.

St. Peter Lutheran School

Course Description

This is an out and back run on FLAT, roads that are mostly paved.  Those running the 10k will get some hard-packed gravel road for a stretch. Both the 5k and 10k routes begin in front of St Peter Lutheran School and head north along Raucholz Rd. The 5k turns around at the corner of Raucholz and Pangborn Rd, while the 10k turns right on Pangborn and proceeds to N Fordney Rd before turning around and heading back. Both routes will turn right on Lunney Rd in front of St Peter Lutheran School before turning into the parking lot of St Peter Lutheran Church and ending with a sprint to the finish line.
