Whew, now that registration is behind us, what’s up with the Trot in 2019 anyway? It’s early this year: Friday, August 23rd. Plan to arrive around 5:30 pm. The race starts at 6 pm, with dinner and a DJ-fueled dance party to follow! Bring water—it will probably be hot—and consider walking or biking to the event, since parking will be limited. And don’t stress if you’re not a marathoner in your spare time. This is a fun, relaxed walk or run through the neighborhood and is only about two miles in length. Please leave dogs and bikes at home, but feel free to push littles in strollers or wagons.
The logo this year was designed by Trailwood parent Julie Severns (Lillian and Jake’s mom). Tell her what a great job she did when you see her!
Finally, did you know that the T-Bird Trot is actually a fundraiser for the Trailwood library?! What?! It’s true. For several years running, the event has pulled in enough money to make a $1,000 gift to the library for books and other curriculum materials. Consider making a donation this year! You can do so by clinking on the registration link above.
