Peter De Mott Peace Trot

Event Details

  • Date:

The Peter De Mott Peace Trot is a traditional off road race set at a Cornell campus treasure – the Arboretum. 5K runners run the paths around the ponds and up a sharp hill to the roadway before descending to the finish line – and great food! The Peace Trot is an annual 5k and 1-mile run organized and hosted by the Ithaca Catholic Worker in honor of peace activist, runner and Ithaca community member, Peter De Mott. Peter worked tirelessly to bring about a more just and peaceful world, and the Peace Trot is a fun and healthy way to celebrate his life and inspire others to work for peace. The Peace Trot is also a fundraiser for the Ithaca Catholic Worker community, which Peter was a part of.
