This year, Northfield Rotary is taking the annual Thanksgiving Turkey Trot online.

For those who support Rotary programs, but will be out of town on Thanksgiving morning, there is now the “Free-Range Turkey Trot.” Long distance runners are invited to sign up at northfieldrotary.org/event/turkeytrot and share a photo or video of their virtual run. The cost is $20 per participant. The fee includes a T-shirt mailed in advance so out of town participants can wear them for the photos or videos they post. The most creative will be awarded a prize. The deadline for those who will be running elsewhere is Friday, Nov. 11.

“We saw an opportunity to include more people in this event,” said Rob Bierman, chair of the Rotary Turkey Trot Committee. “This gives those who cannot physically be in town an opportunity to support Rotary’s important work.”

Start: Nov 24 2016 9:10 am

Thanksgiving Turkey Trot is community’s unofficial homecoming

The Northfield Rotary Turkey Trot has become Northfield’s unofficial homecoming event for the 1000-plus runners and walkers who participate each year.  

Now in its 16th year, the 5K run/walk is a Thanksgiving tradition for many Northfield households, a “must-do” for those who want to connect with old friends and neighbors and be reminded that Northfield is always home.

Rob Bierman, chair of Rotary’s Turkey Trot Committee, said this event has become one of the community’s signature events.
