Runners smile before the start of MLES’s Turkey Trot.
Mt Laurel Elementary School is once again hosting its Turkey Trot one-mile fun run and 5K.
This year will be the 10th annual fun run for the school, but the first time the even also includes a 5K. The run will take participants from Mt Laurel Elementary School through the town of Mt Laurel, and the course is a certified 5K.
The 5K will start at MLES on Nov. 5 at 8 a.m., with the fun run starting at 9 a.m. Online pre-registration is now open. Pre-registration for guaranteed T-shirts was available through Oct. 18, and while there will be more available after that date, a T-shirt is not guaranteed.
Walk-up registration will be available the day of the race, starting at 7 a.m.
Prizes will be available for the 5K and fun run, and the overall male and female winners will receive a Thanksgiving turkey. The top three runners in each age group will receive medals, and all school-age children will receive participation ribbons.
The Turkey Trot is an annual fundraiser for MLES, and this year the money raised will go to the physical education department at the school as well as toward the PTO’s technology initiatives.
