7th Annual Turkey Trot
Thursday, November 23, 2023
Thanksgiving Day is a day to spend with family and friends and slow down and be grateful for all that we have. Our annual event, the Ridgefield Public Schools Foundation Turkey Trot, allows our community to come together and do just that. It is the perfect way to start the day and work up an appetite for all that turkey and pie! And the best part is that all proceeds for this event equally benefit the Ridgefield Public Schools Foundation and the Ridgefield Family Resource Center.
This year’s event, held on Thursday, November 23rd, will feature a drumstick dash (a short run for children ages 5 and under getting underway at 8:45 am) that will be followed by the main event, a 5K walk/run, at 9:00 am. Both events will start and end at Union Ridge Elementary School in downtown Ridgefield. There is no additional registration needed for the Drumstick Dash.
Course Map: 5K ROUTE
This is a fun run/walk so there will not be a formal timer.
Race packet pick up and in-person registration will be on Wednesday, Nov. 22nd, from 4 to 6 pm and race day from 7:45 to 8:45 am in the Union Ridge Elementary School Gym. We will have a limited number of extra T-shirts available for purchase at in-person registration.
At race packet pick up, please bring nonperishable food items for donation to the Ridgefield Family Resource Center. Each item will earn you a ticket that could be worth $100 in local restaurant gift cards.
To guarantee yourself a race T-shirt, participants must register by 5 pm on Sunday, November 5th.
