West Virginia Wesleyan’s Wellness Center will sponsor the first Early Bird Turkey Trot 5K Run/2 Mile Walk on Sunday, November 11 at 1 p.m. at the track on Ross Field with proceeds benefiting the Wesleyan track team and wellness center.

Preregistration is $15 for the general public and $10 with a WVWC discount for students and staff until November 10th.  On race day the entry fee will be $20: pre-registration is highly encouraged. First 100 registered will receive a free t-shirt.

The 2012 Early Bird Turkey Trot is going to be a flat and fast course.  The race will start at the track and continue through the town of Buckhannon. In the case of rain, the race will be moved to the Auxiliary Gym located in Rockefeller Center.

The top three females and males will be awarded a prize. Each participant who would like to dress up like a turkey or pilgrim will be entered in a drawing for Best Costume.
