Event Details

The Peter De Mott 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. This event has become a fun filled, family Father’s Day event in its nine years. We also invite serious runners to its well known fast course to try and equal race records. You can pay as much as you can afford or can donate extra to help our important peace and community work. Either way, all participants will receive one of our newly designed collectable t-shirts. You will enjoy some nutritious food after the run and age group winners receive unique, practical, artistic or quirky prizes of their own choosing. Won’t you join us?

9am start.  Registration is FREE and online only!

The memorial runs in memory of renowned Ithaca peace activist and Catholic Worker, Peter DeMott, who died in 2009 at the age of 62. The course includes both 5K and mile lengths and will start at the Cornell Arboretum. 

Thank you for being part of the Ithaca Catholic Worker's mission of engaging in nonviolent, compassionate action towards social justice and peace for all.
Trot, run, walk, roll, stroll, skip, mosey or saunter!
