The 2012 St. Mike’s Turkey Trot Fun Run/Walk course has been approved and is now available for you all to check out.

The run will start at St. Michael’s School on Keuka Street, going around the PYA bus loop, through both the Lakeview and St. Michael’s Cemeteries and back again for a finish at the school.  Parking will be available at the St. Michael’s Church parking lot as well as the surrounding parking lots which are all in close walking distance to the race start.

Below is a version with directional arrows illustrating the flow of the race.  When you have made the turnaround at the end of the St. Michael’s Cemetery (the furthest point and where mile maker 2 is located) you will then backtrack around the same loop, head back on Elm Street and then enter Lakeview Cemetery (where the 1 mile marker is located on the map).  Once in the cemetery you will take a more direct route through and end up going straight down Court Street where you will finish the race by making a right hand turn and ending up back at St. Michael’s School.

What to know about the course:

-Police will be at the major intersections/roads (Keuka Street and Elm Street/54a)

-Directional Signs and Cones along with numerous volunteers will be used to ensure proper routing

-Two water tables will be available at the denoted points on the map

Race T-Shirt’s – Adults and Youth

The students at St. Mike’s have been working hard on creating the 2012 Turkey Trot Logo for the race shirts this year and it will be a very special keepsake for sure.  The shirt will be a long sleeve version, similar to those that Seneca Farms carries if you are familiar with them.

In addition to the adult long sleeve shirts we will also be selling YOUTH short sleeve t-shirts that have been approved for Gym Uniforms for the year for all St. Mike’s students!

That’s it for now.  More news and race details to come, so be sure to check back with us later this week!

Have a great week!
