1K  Junior Trot 

The Junior Trot is a 1K fun run for kids that starts at 8:15 a.m. (Before The Trot) Junior Trotters will line up at City Hall Plaza (at the "8-mile finish line"), run west onto Marilla street, take a left on Young Street to the Griffin Street intersection, u-turn, and race back to the Finish Line at City Hall Plaza! Each registered Junior Trotter can have one registered adult or companion Turkey Trotter run with him/her for no additional charge.

The Junior Trot and Turkey Trot Combo includes both the 1K Junior Trot and the 5K or 8-Mile Turkey Trot. Participants in this category will be eligible for age group awards in the 5K or 8 Mile (timed bib included).

The Junior Trot registration includes the 1K Junior Trot fun run only.

All registered Junior Trotters will receive:

  • Participant t-shirt
  • Junior Trot bib
  • Finisher medal


Q: What time/where does the Junior Trot start?
A: The Junior Trot will start at 8:15 am, directly in front of City Hall at the “8-Mile Finish Line”

Q: My kid(s) want to do the Junior Trot AND the 5K.
A: There is a combination registration for the Junior Trot and Turkey Trot. This will allow kids to run the Junior Trot at 8:15 a.m. and the 5K/8-Mile with the rest of the family at 8:30 or 9:00 a.m. Once they have completed the Junior Trot, the whole family can head directly over to the “starting line” on Young Street to begin the Turkey Trot courses. Look at it as an alternative to standing in the line to begin The Trot.
