Run Your Can Off


Thanksgiving Trail Run

Nov. 12, 2016, 9 AM – 3 PM
Gilbrook Natural Area
Winooski, Vt
       Running is fun: getting a group of people together to run for a good cause: even better.  We’re hoping participants will embrace the philosophy of giving during the Thanksgiving holiday and pledge to donate goods as their entry fee.

  • The course will follow a 1.25 mile loop on smooth forest single track through the Gilbrook Natural Area in Winooski, Vt.
  • The event will span a 6 hour time period - join us for as many or as few loops as you’d like.  Run a few loops as a morning workout, grab a friend and run an hour, 3 hours, or the whole 6 hours   - or run it all by yourself, you decide.  We'll start at 9 AM - registration starts at 7:00 AM - come early to get your number!  Registration will close between 8:50 and 9:10 to coordinate the start of the run with moving the registration table down the hill to run central - please plan accordingly.
  • Donations may be made on a per mile or time based scale (for instance, pledging 1 can per mile, or 1 can per 15 minutes of running). 
  • Donations do not have to be food: other items such as cleaning supplies, toiletries, and condiments are also in high demand.  See donations page for more info.  All donations will go to the local food shelf.  
  • Please contact Greg Veltkamp @ for further info or if you have any questions.
