We hope you will join us on Saturday, November 5th at 9:00 AM for the Twister Trot. It will be a fun filled morning starting with a 5K timed run / 1 mile fun run through American Village. Post race festivities will follow. Whether you are a competitive racer or are just looking forward to walking with your friend, we are sure you will have a great time.
The TDS Twister Trot, formerly Marcy's Run, is a race to honor the courage and strength of our community. Marcy Speer was a dedicated wife, mother, and scientist in the Durham community and lost her battle with cancer in 2007. We invite all of our racers to honor a friend or family member impacted by cancer at our race.
Proceeds of this event will benefit the Triangle Day School Annual Fund.
