LUDLOW, Vt. – On Nov. 29, 2019, Okemo Mountain School is scheduled to host Trot It Off, a 5k running and walking race. This community event that takes place each year on the Friday following Thanksgiving is perfect for the avid runner or the recreational walker hoping to burn off the calories from that extra serving of Thanksgiving pie.
Proceeds go to the Wendy Neal Scholarship Fund. All participants will receive an event gift. The Tots Trot, a kids’ fun race for children 10 and younger, will take place just before the 5k. Registration will start at 8:30 a.m. on the day of the event in the Cornerstone Room at Okemo’s Jackson Gore Inn. The Tots Trot will start at 9:15 a.m. and the 5k race will start at 9:30 a.m.
