City of Mt. Vernon  Recreation Department

The Police Department 

The City of Mount Vernon was a strong supporter of our vision to hold the Turkey Trot from the very beginning. A special thanks goes to the Mayor of Mount Vernon, Shawyn Patterson-Howard,  the Recreation Dept-CMV, the Dept Public Works-CMV, and the Police Dept.-CMV.

We would also like to thank the many donors who contributed to our event. Whether giving $5 or $100, every contribution counted towards organizing a successful event!

The WRMV Thanksgiving Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk is a perfect vehicle to reach and engage potential members and supporters in Mount Vernon, Westchester County and beyond. Being a sponsor shows you are supportive of community health and fitness. Our first annual Turkey Trot held in 2020  was Virtual. We had 232 participants from Mount Vernon and even a few international participants.  It was a phenomenal success and exceeded our expectation! This year we expect our Turkey Trot to attract many more participants.

Our event this year takes place on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 2021.  Live Runners and Walkers will complete 3.1 miles starting at Mount Vernon City Hall Plaza and ending at the Hartley Park Finish Line. There are promotional opportunities for sponsors at the Finish Line, Banner, DJ stage, T-shirts and Bibs.  Those who can’t make the live event can participant via a Virtual Trot from Sunday, November 21st  – Saturday, November 27th, 2021.

Both Live and Virtual participants generally post pictures of their Run/Walk and tag @werunmtvernon on FaceBook, Instagram and Twitter. They also record the Turkey Trot participation on sites like Strava, Map My Run, and other running apps. Therefore, your support will have social media presence in addition to being listed on our website starting in November. 

We want to extend a big Thank You to our first sponsors! 

  • United Methodist Women-First Church Mt. Vernon generously donated $1000 to our Turkey Trot. 
  • Tanya Southerland gave $500 through her Employee Matching Program at MasterCard.
