Join De La Salle Institute as we proudly present the 2020 Virtual Meteor Rising D-Turkey Trot 5K/10K, held on Monday, November 2nd – Monday, November 30th!!

The event provides a wonderful opportunity for students, families, faculty & staff, alumni, and friends to promote health & wellness, education, as well as school and community spirit during the Pandemic and Thanksgiving Holiday Season. Proceeds go to the Meteor Rising Fund.

Since the Turkey Trot is being held virtually, participants can complete the race of their choosing anytime and anywhere in the world (park, trail, treadmill, backyard, etc.) from Monday, November 2nd – Monday, November 30th. Methods include running, walking, or rolling. You decide! Just lace up your sneakers and get started. As an added treat, we’ve even provided options for children (Mashed Potato 1 Mile Fun Run, Tot Trot, and Drumstick Diaper Dash)!!
