Newton Turkey Trot Mission
Back in person! The Newton Turkey Trot is back on the streets in November 2021! We hope that the race will have something for everyone. We were so inspired by having runners from around the country and around the world last year, we want to continue to spread the love!
Join us on Saturday, November 20th at Zervas elementary school for the in-person run or run your own virtual race during the Thanksgiving week, November 20-27, anywhere in the country. The beautiful, USATF Certified, Newton Turkey Trot course and 1 mile fun run will be marked with race signs during that week.
Our goals this November remain, as always, our youth’s awareness of health and wellness and of community service. We will continue our partnership of providing support to the Newton Food Pantry and new this year, Journey Forward, a non-profit organization dedicated to bettering lives of those with spinal cord injuries or disability.
Participants registered by October 27th will receive an awesome Newton Turkey Trot tee-shirt.
The Newton Turkey Trot is a family event that has drawn more than 1,000 participants each year from our community and beyond. Our families of runners will be eager to run outside again and will want to continue to support our fundraising goals. Both the Newton Food Pantry and Journey Forward need our support. We are staying positive that we can get through this and we hope you will continue to support our race and your community.
***We will be following the recommended Covid-19 safety measures per the city of Newton, MDPH and CDC for all participants and volunteers for the race. Given the uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic, the in-person race may be cancelled. In this case the race would become completely virtual.
Thank you and be well,
the Newton Turkey Trot Team
