Welcome to the official site of the 11th Annual Newtown Turkey Trot 5K Road Race to benefit the C. H. Booth Library! The COVID-19 pandemic requires us to maintain social distancing so this year's Turkey Trot will be a virtual event held during the 4-day Thanksgiving holiday. Participants will be able to complete their 5K distance at any location and at any time over the holiday weekend.
Afterward, you may upload your time at this website to see how your effort compared with others. If you also want to add a photo or two from the run we would welcome that as well!
The Newtown Turkey Trot provides essential funds to maintain the library and provide programming initiatives. Funds raised from your participation will support the C.H. Booth Library’s mission to promote the joy of lifelong learning, stimulate curiosity, support the exchange of ideas, and provide a welcoming gathering place.
The Turkey Trot has grown over the years to become a popular holiday tradition for our community. It presents an opportunity for family and friends to share a common experience while supporting a vital community resource. Your involvement with this year’s virtual event sends a message that the library matters to this community.
