Event Description

We are excited for you to join us at the inaugural Cedar Springs Public Schools Chicken Trot 5K on Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, November 25, 2022, at 8 a.m.!

Start your Thanksgiving Day with a 5K run through the Cedar Springs Public Schools campus.  The race will begin at Cedar Springs High School and end with one lap around Red Hawk Stadium. Kids 5 and under can participate for free in the Chick Trot, one lap around the Red Hawk Stadium track (no medal or T-shirt is included). Fun for the entire family!

Ninety percent of proceeds will go toward classroom supplies throughout Cedar Springs Public Schools, and the final 10% will support the Cedar Springs High School track team (whose coaches are volunteering their time to plan and make this run happen)!

Why a chicken trot? We know everyone gets plenty of turkey on Thanksgiving, and we wanted to make our event unique! Our FFA program at the high school raises chickens in the fall and will be donating three chickens to give away to our top three overall runners. Everyone who completes the 5K will receive a voucher for a free Chick-Fil-A sandwich, a special chicken medal (designed by Madeline VanSinger, 2022 graduate from Cedar Springs High School), and a T-shirt.
