How will 2020 be different for the Pilgrim Pie Run? The COVID-19 pandemic unfortunately will not allow us to host the Pilgrim Pie Run 5K in-person on Thanksgiving morning. For the safety of our participants and volunteers, and in accordance with state and local guidelines, the race will not be hosted in-person in 2020. HOWEVER, we are taking this annual Thanksgiving family tradition virtual! The virtual run allows families to participant in the 20th anniversary version of this great race by partnering with America’s Turkey Trot! By doing so, you’ll be supporting the La Grange Rotary’s numerous community initiatives.
What does Pilgrim Pie Run partnership with America’s Turkey Trot mean? America’s Turkey Trot is a national community virtual event the Pilgrim Pie Run is partnering with. That means that participation of our participants supports our race and the Rotary’s community mission. Additionally, you’ll be receiving an America’s Turkey Trot jacket, medal, and sock hat!
Will there be Pilgrim Pie Run swag? No, not this year. Due to the pandemic, we cannot host our event as you are used to. Instead, we are partnering with the America’s Turkey Trot for 2020. You WILL receive an America’s Turkey Trot jacket, medal, and hat delivered to your door!
Where can I walk/run? Anywhere! This is your virtual run, and we want you to complete it wherever you want. Sidewalks, paths, treadmill- make this race your own! Want to run with a stroller or Fido? Do it! We just ask that you tag us on Facebook @pilgrimpierun
