In this very unique year where we can participate in events virtually from around the globe, we’ve turned our focus to our collective mission instead of geography and date. The event you have known for 13 years as the Morris Township Thanksgiving Day 5K Turkey Trot is now the…

In our 14th year, our goal is the same as always – support the Literacy Volunteers of Morris County as they teach residents to READ, help the Interfaith Food Pantry as they FEED residents in need, and keep each one of us fit with our annual holiday RUN.

Step 1: Register yourself or your Fund-racing team!

Register yourself or start a fund-racing team! Teams can consist of family, friends, clubs, coworkers, or any other group you can rally! Make sure you add your team name when you sign up. Prizes for the largest team and the most creative team!

Step 2: Choose your distance.

Create your own Trot experience. Take on our traditional Thanksgiving Day 5K run or walk (in your own neighborhood this year) or challenge yourself to a little extra in the month prior to the event. Between 10/26 and 11/26 how far can you go? We are asking you to get off your couch and create your own marathon!  Whether you choose to take an extra 26 steps a day, walk 26 miles in a month,  run a double marathon,  or create a team to compete,  this year, our Virtual Turkey Trot is your Turkey Trot. Fight Hunger. Promote Literacy and Get Fit.
