UPDATE: WE HAVE EXCEEDED 2,500 TROTTERS SO CAN’T GUARANTEE A PULLOVER TO ANYONE WHO REGISTERED AFTER 11/17. HOWEVER, WE HAVE ORDERED 3,000 PULLOVERS AND WILL DISTRIBUTE THOSE WHICH REMAIN TO ANYONE WITH A BIB NUMBER HIGHER THAN 2500 AFTER THE TROT AT THE PULLOVER TABLE INSIDE D1 SPORTS WHILE THEY LAST.

AS OF 11/19 AT 10 P.M., WE HIT 3,000 TROTTERS SO ARE NOW OUT OF BIBS, TIMING CHIPS AND PULLOVERS. WE STILL INVITE THOSE WHO WANT TO BE PART OF THE TROT TO SIGN UP FOR A $20 DONATION TO GRACEWORKS BY SIGNING UP THROUGH 11:59 P.M. ON MONDAY, NOV 21, BY CLICKING THE REGISTRATION BUTTON. NOTE THAT SINCE A BIB, TIMING CHIP OR PULLOVER ISN’T INCLUDED IN THIS PACKAGE, THOSE WHO REGISTER WILL NOT NEED TO COME TO D1 SPORTS TO PICK UP A PACKET AND CAN JUST SHOW UP FOR THE TROT THURSDAY MORNING.

WE WILL ACCEPT REGISTRATIONS FOR NO BIB, CHIP OR PULLOVER TROTTERS ON WEDNESDAY, NOV 23 FROM 3:00-6:30 P.M. AT D1 SPORTS TRAINING OR BEFORE THE TROT ON THURSDAY, NOV 24 FROM 6:30-7:45. REGISTRATION WILL BE $25 ON THESE DAYS.

That’s why we are asking every participant in the Turkey Trot to consider asking friends and family to sponsor them. Our simple-to-use fundraising page makes it easy to make a positive impact on the lives of struggling Williamson County families by fundraising individually or as a team.
