Claremont Sunrise Rotary to host annual Turkey Trot

Organizers of Claremont Sunrise Rotary’s 7th annual Turkey Trot—a 5K Run/Walk and 1K Fun Run set for Thanksgiving morning—invite serious runners and families alike to take part in the morning run, which drew nearly 2,000 people last year.

The runs begin on Thursday, November 27 at the Claremont Depot at First Street and Harvard Avenue. The 5K will take runners through the Claremont Colleges and the streets of the Village for a downhill finish. More seasoned runners will be stationed at the front of the start line, while walkers and joggers will be positioned at the back.

All kids up to age 10 who participate will receive a medal. For 5K runners, trophy awards will be given to the best overall times in male and female categories, with place medals divided by gender and age groups from 10 years and under to over 80.

The cost to pre-register is $35 for adults and $20 for children 12 and under. Online pre-registration closes Monday, November 24 at noon. A T-shirt is included with pre-registration but cannot be guaranteed to those who late register. To register online, visit
