We are now less than a week away from the 13th Annual Guthrie Sayre Turkey Trot 5K, presented by Robert Packer Hospital Auxiliary. The race will be held on Thursday, Nov. 28, Thanksgiving Day, in Sayre, Pa.
Registration will be available at the packet pickup at the Patterson Auditorium on the Guthrie Sayre campus on Wednesday, Nov. 27 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and the morning of the race, Thursday, Nov. 28, in front of the Sayre Theatre from 8-9:30 a.m.
Proceeds from the Guthrie Sayre Turkey Trot will benefit Guthrie’s Cancer Care Fund. This fund assists patients with financial burdens that come with fighting a cancer diagnosis.
“The proceeds from the Guthrie Sayre Turkey Trot will help more than 60 patients in active treatment with a cancer diagnosis pay their household expenses,” said Nichole Cocco, Guthrie Special Event and Annual Giving Officer. She added, “We are so thankful for the many community sponsors and hundreds of runners that come together to help make this event a success for those who rely on the Guthrie Cancer Care Fund.”
With more than 700 runners registered and an estimated 800 expected on race day, the Turkey Trot continues to be the largest race in Bradford County.
