10th Annual Shamokin Rotary Turkey Trot Thanksgiving Day


Shamokin Rotary’s 10th Annual Turkey Trot Coming Up

SHAMOKIN – It’s a milestone year for the annual Shamokin Rotary Turkey Trot. ..The 10th annual event will take place Thanksgiving morning.

Sherri Sheblesky is the Shamokin Rotary membership Chairman, “So this year is a special year. We really want to break the record as far as having the number of runners participating in the race…and walkers.”

At Kemp Memorial Stadium, the 5K race and run/fun walk begins at 9 a.m., with registration at 8 a.m. Day-of registrations are $30.

Shebelsky says there are additional prizes this year, “Two $100 prizes for the top female runner and for the top male runner. This year we had someone come in and say, ‘Hey, I was a runner, I can’t run any longer, but here’s $100, please give a second-place prize. So $50 to the second top female and $50 to the second top male.”

More information can be found at Baders Fine Furniture in Shamokin, or on the Shamokin Rotary Club Facebook page.
