The Turkey Trot is an annual fun run that is optional.  A student may choose to run or cheer.  The run is an opportunity for our students to work on improving their cardiovascular endurance and strive to improve on their own personal times also known as a personal record (PR).  This run supports our quest to improve all of our student’s fitness levels as measured by the President’s Physical Fitness Test that we administer twice a year.  Our hope is that through these personal records our students will eventually achieve an optimal fitness level and learn a valuable lesson about how to maintain fitness for a lifetime.

  1. Please eat a healthy breakfast to fuel up for the race.
  2. Wear a hat and gloves because running in cold temperatures causes blood to divert to the working muscles and organs, hands and ears become very cold.
  3. Student’s with asthma should go to the nurse to use his/her inhaler prior to coming to the gym. Running in the cold constricts the airway.

Please help us support the Burlington Food Pantry by bringing a non perishable food item to the race.
