GCS Education Foundation to hold 5th Annual 5K Turkey Trot


Before loading up on turkey and all the tasty trimmings, The Greeneville City Schools (GCS) Education Foundation invites you to participate in the 4th Annual GCSEF 5K Turkey Trot through downtown Greeneville on Thanksgiving morning, November 28, 2019 and participate in a local, healthy, holiday tradition.  


This family friendly event supports education in Greeneville City Schools while encouraging health and wellness.    Funds raised through the Turkey Trot benefit the Greeneville City Schools Education Foundation (GCSEF), a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that provides funding for innovative projects in GCS that reach beyond the scope of the school system’s regular operating budget.  The Greeneville City School with the highest percentage of participation will receive a cash prize.  Last year, Eastview Elementary School won the school participation challenge and received $500 to benefit Physical Education programming.


The 5K will begin at Greeneville High School’s Burley Stadium at 8:00 a.m.  Race day registration begins at 6:45am.  Registration forms and guidelines can be uploaded from the organization’s website: or picked up at the GCS Education Foundation office located in the Kathryn W. Leonard Administrative Offices building at 129 W. Depot Street.  You can also register online:


This year’s route will be certified and timing chips are available.  Awards will be presented in the following divisions:  Elementary students, Middle School students, High School students, College students, Adult (under 40), Adult (40+), Grand Master (50+), Senior Grand Master (60+), and teachers/administrators. Participants can only place in ONE category.  Winners will recieve a medal.  Medals for this event have been designed and produced by students from the Machine Tool Program at Greene Tech.
