Trot Fest

Pre-Trot number pick-up at the SMEC Building and post-Trot festivities at Rasputin's Tavern!


Thanksgiving morning is usually pretty COLD! So, layer up and plan to be outside for a few minutes before the Trot to pick-up your number. 


After the 5K, visit Rasputin's Tavern for hot coffee, hot chocolate, snacks, and good times while you stretch and thaw-out in the toasty space.

Big thanks in 2019 to Rasputin's Tavern for hosting, once again, this year's After-Trot Fest!
