5K Turkey Trot

Posted: September 29, 2021

The Vernon Annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot is back! Are you ready?

Come join the fun at Vernon’s Annual 5K Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning, November 25, 2021 (rain or shine).

Dust off your finest feathers and join the Vernon Township Board of Recreation for a breath of fresh autumn air Thanksgiving morning to hobble before you gobble. It’s easy as pumpkin pie! Run or walk…on your own, with the family or create a team with some friends—this is a fun tradition to kickoff this day of giving and benefit such a worthy cause.

The race will begin at 8:00 a.m. at the Holy Counselor Lutheran Church at 68 Sandhill Road in Vernon. Check-in and bib pick-up will start at 7:00 a.m.

The fee is $25.00 for early registration and $30.00 for race day registration. Flocks of four or more are $20 each participant. Children under 10 are free. Register by November 15, 2021 and receive a free t-shirt.

Race proceeds will benefit the Harvest House. Be sure to bring a non-perishable item to donate.
