Turkey Trot Corp Pays School District $30,000 from 2013 Race and $20,000 from 2014 Race

Following the November 4, 2014 agreement with the Piedmont Unified School District (PUSD),  the new Piedmont Turkey Trot (PTT) corporation began paying the District $30,000 from proceeds of the prior year 2013 Turkey Trot race.  The agreement requires PTT to pay $20,000 to PUSD each January following the annual Thanksgiving Day race through January 15, 2019, the end of the five-year agreement.  In January, 2015 PTT paid PUSD $20,000 to aid the Piedmont High cross-country and track and field programs, the original purpose of the fund-raising race when it was organized by parents and students in 2003.

The City of Piedmont has unreimbursed traffic control and public safety expenses for the Turkey Trot. For two years PTT agreed to pay “excess profits” from the race to the Piedmont Athletic Facilities Fund.
