East Aurora and West Aurora High Schools have historically been rivals dating way back to the annual football game that began in 1893. The game was typically the last game of the year, on Thanksgiving, and played on Hurd’s Island.
To celebrate and honor this cross-town tradition and rivalry, the Aurora East Educational Foundation and the A+ Foundation for West Aurora Schools will be hosting the TOM-A-HAWK 5K Turkey Trot on Saturday, November, 20, 2021, beginning at 9:00 a.m. at the Wilder Promenade in Downtown Aurora.
We would like to invite you to join us either as a runner or a race sponsor. Your sponsorship will help encourage people to get out in the community and be active, promote your brand, and support both East and West Aurora School Districts.
