Vernon Free Range Virtual Turkey Trot 5k Walk/Run

Posted: October 16, 2020

Each year, the Vernon Recreation Department hosts a Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot to raise funds and collect non-perishables for the Harvest House Food Pantry located in Sussex, NJ.

Due to COVID-19 and for the well being of all of our participants, we have made the switch to a virtual 5K race/walk and are proud to announce the Vernon Free Range Virtual Turkey Trot!

It’s easy as pumpkin pie! Sign up, decide your route, get out your finest feathers and hobble before you gobble! Complete your 5k free range—anywhere, anytime during the week of November 21 - 28, 2020. While we will miss seeing everyone Thanksgiving morning, this does add some flexibility that we can all appreciate! You can go to a trail, a track, your neighborhood park or even on a treadmill—it’s your choice! 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.
