The Zack’s Place Turkey Trot, a 5K run and walk held on Thanksgiving
Day, was first established in 2007, and has become a dependable annual
fundraiser ever since. In 2007, almost 200 people participated. In 2017,
over 1,700 people participated and raised $78,000. All of the proceeds
of the race are dedicated to our operational costs.
As participants line up and register for the race they are
entertained by a band on a flatbed truck. Hot coffee, tea and hot
chocolate are offered. The race begins in front of the Woodstock
Elementary School at 10:00 AM, with the more skilled runners in front
and the rest following. The run meanders through the historic Village of
Woodstock, then on towards Billings Farm, around Mountain Avenue, and
back around The Town Green, ending at the starting line. An award
ceremony, also with refreshments and a band, follows the race where
medals are presented.

Families run together as college students and relatives gather for
the Thanksgiving celebration. Grandparents and young children in
carriages participate as walkers, dogs join in as well. It has become a
tradition for many in the Woodstock area; however we also have
“satellite participants” who cannot be in Woodstock but who run with
family wherever they are: Hawaii, Italy, New York City, etc. This is
indeed a day of thanks where individuals help support our enrichment
center and give thanks for their own gifts at the same time.

Cost: paid – 30.00
