This is a great alternative to all of the “Turkey Trots” going on this time of year! We’ll be celebrating awareness for organic and vegetarian food options, and healthy lifestyles. Following the run, enjoy live music, FREE organic and vegetarian food from Ada’s Natural Market, and FREE beer and organic wine. More than 200 runners and walkers of all ages are anticipated to attend this 5K Run/Walk winding through the beautiful trails of the historic “Koreshan State Park” in Estero, FL.
Terrain includes gravel trails, grass trails, and a small portion of road trail, along the Estero River. Award ceremony will follow the run, with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners awarded for male & female in each age category. The Tofurky Trot is more than just a run. It is also an effort to help those in need locally, and around the world. Our hope is to give relief to the victims of abject suffering and collect used shoes to support micro-business efforts to eradicate poverty. All participants are asked to donate a pair of used shoes to be redistributed to those in need worldwide, or recycled for materials. You may also register day of event!
