NORTH EAST, Md. – Cecil College Athletics will host the Second Annual Seahawk Turkey 5K Trot Walk/Run on Saturday, Nov. 20, to benefit student-athlete development at Cecil College, including tuition scholarships, book vouchers, and academic support services, equipment and transportation needs, and much more. This fall’s race will be held from 9 – 10:30 a.m. on the North East Campus.

Participants move at their own pace along the terrain of the two, 1.5 mile Turkey Trot loops which are ideal for walking, jogging, or running and include a mixture of asphalt, packed gravel, and grass.

The event will be socially distanced to ensure that members of a household are able to maintain six-feet of distance from other participants. No pets allowed. Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation, there is a possibility that this event may be moved to a virtual event in which participants will be notified as early as possible.

The registration fee is $20, with proceeds going to the Cecil College Foundation to fund student needs. Registration will close on Thursday, Nov. 18, at 11:59 p.m.

Participants will receive a t-shirt at the event. This event will be held “light rain or shine,” but in the case of extreme weather conditions, the rain date will be Sunday, Nov. 21.

Prizes will be awarded to top male and female finishers in the following age groups: age 13-29, age 30-49, age 50-69, age 70+.

Registration can be done online, along with further information at www.cecil.edu/turkeytrot.
