Trauma Trot and Kids Safety Expo
This event features a series of 1K, 5K and 8K cross country races on a beautiful, scenic, challenging, grass cross country course, as well as entertaining and educational displays and demonstrations for the whole family.
Proceeds from the Trauma Trot currently fund two pediatric injury prevention projects. The first allows the Sentara RMH Emergency Department to provide bicycle helmets to area children. The second, "Ice Cream for Safety", provides ice cream coupons to local law enforcement agencies to be used as positive reinforcement for children or families wearing bicycle helmets or appropriately securing children in child safety seats.
The cross-country race is held on the Burtner Cross Country Course, which neighbors Peak View Elementary School. Please park at the school on race day. Peak View Elementary School.
