When and Where

The Morris County Turkey Trot will take place on Thanksgiving morning, November 26 at the Ginty Field Complex on Woodland Avenue in Morris Township, NJ.

Check-in for racers will be bright and early at 7 am, where you can grab your Turkey Trot T-shirt. Even if you aren’t an experienced racer, the various races offered make the Morris County Turkey Trot perfect for all ages and skill level. The first race, a 5K, will be held at 8:30 am. Ten minutes later, at 8:40 am, the one-mile race or walk will take off. And at 9:15 am, the Kids’ Trot will start on the lawn for racers ages 12 and under.

An awards ceremony will be held for the 5K racers at 9:30 am. The top three racers in each of the five age groups will be honored in front of the whole crowd.

What Else Is There to Do?

While the race is going on, spectators can enjoy a variety of refreshments and DJ entertainment. The Morris County Turkey Trot will be a great time for racers, but during the event, you can mingle with the rest of the Butler, Kinnelon, and Bloomingdale community.

Supporting the Community

 Proceeds from the Morris County Turkey Trot will go to the Interfaith Food Pantry serving Morris County. The Interfaith Pantry provides easy access to food and nutrition information for our neighbors in need. By working to spread awareness about the issue of hunger in our community, the Interfaith Food Pantry tries to fight back and make sure that as few Morris County residents as possible go hungry.

The Morris County Turkey Trot will also benefit the Literacy Volunteers of Morris County (LVMC). For 25 years, LVMC has offered free tutoring to the Morris County community to combat the growing issue of adult literacy. By offering assistance in writing, reading, and communicating, LVMC helps residents make the most out of their lives.

This Thanksgiving morning, get out and enjoy a fun event with the rest of your Butler, Kinnelon, and Bloomingdale neighbors to support the racers of the Ninth Annual Morris County Turkey Trot while also doing your part to give back to the community and help fight hunger and illiteracy.
