Registration Now Open for Northfield Rotary Club’s Thanksgiving “Turkey Trot”


Registration is now open for one of Northfield’s favorite holiday traditions – the Northfield Rotary Club will host its annual Turkey Trot 5K Fun Run/Walk on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22, 2012.

The event begins at 9 a.m. at the Northfield Golf Club, located at 707 Prairie Street in Northfield. Registration for pre-registered and same day registrants opens at 8 a.m. The cost to participate is $12 prior to November 8 and $15 after that date.

Each of the first 300 registrants will receive a commemorative long sleeve t-shirt. A time clock displays at the finish, but no official times will be kept.  Awards will be given to the top male and female finisher.

Proceeds from this popular event will be used to benefit the Northfield Rotary Youth Exchange Program and other Rotary International projects.
