The 2nd Annual Teacher Trot 5K and Fun Run is May 3rd

New Hanover County Schools (NHCS) will host the Second Annual Teacher Trot 5K Race and Fun Run on Saturday, May 3, 2014. The event will begin at 8:00 a.m. and will be held at Ashley High School. Proceeds raised from the event will help to support staff wellness and student physical education programs. The event is being sponsored by Hendrix Toyota, Ashton Farm, and other supporting community sponsors. “The Teacher Trot is a great opportunity for New Hanover County Schools employees, students, parents and community members to run together in an effort to build our district’s wellness programs,” said Superintendent Dr. Tim Markley, an avid runner. “NHCS encourages both employees and students to put their physical wellness as a priority. Healthy lifestyle habits are essential for learning.”
Many schools have formed teams and will compete for awards that include “Most School Spirit” and “Most Participation.” In addition, awards will be given to the top three finishers in the following categories: Age Groups, Best Overall, and Teams.
Registration is still open for the NHCS Teacher Trot. Registration costs are $25 for adults and $15 for students.
