The Trot Thru the Woods is an annual 5k and fun run through beautiful Warson Woods residential streets. It is put on by the Warson Woods Running Club. In 2018, we were able to donate net proceeds of $1,000 to the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition to assist in their efforts in creating permanency in foster children’s lives by recruiting and supporting foster and adoptive families in the metropolitan St. Louis region. For the 2019 race, net proceeds will be donated to the World Pediatric Project, which heals critically ill children and builds healthcare capacity in the world. See further information at www.worldpediatricproject.org
We put on one of the most fun races in town. The 5k is priced right and the fun run is free if you sign up by the end of October! We have great swag, free hot chocolate, free pictures of the race and, of course, the famous running turkey!
