About The Race

It has most recently taken place in the spring, but we are moving it back to the fall with a Thanksgiving Turkey Trot! The race will be held the weekend before Thanksgiving on Saturday, November 18, 2017. We moved the race back to the fall because the spring is a particularly busy time of year, and we want to maximize the opportunity for children of all ages to participate.

The event continues to grow. About 600 people ran or walked in our first race in 2011. This past April, we had well over 700 participants. Janney has also grown from just over 400 students to now 730+ children from 500+ families. The Janney Elementary School PTA believes strongly in the effort to host the Janney 5K to promote healthy children and adults and to connect with the community.

As before, the race will start and finish at Janney Elementary School and cover the same USATF-certified neighborhood course through AU Park.

Let’s make this the biggest and best Janney 5K ever. We had a great showing of racers in Spring 2017, not just from Janney Families but also runners from around the greater Tenlytown community.

The Janney PTA thanks you for supporting the race and hopes you can join us on November 18th, 2017.
