Join in the Claremont Sunrise Rotary Turkey Trot
For the eighth consecutive year, the Claremont Sunrise Rotary Club is putting on its Turkey Trot 5k and 1k run on Thanksgiving Day, November 26.
The 1k “Fun Run” is for kids 10 and under and commences at 7:30 a.m., while the 5k run starts at 8 a.m. Both races start and end at the Claremont Depot.
The Turkey Trot has become an annual rite of passage for avid runners, families, groups and even people who just walk the route with their dogs. Participation last year exceeded 2,500 people, up from just over 1,000 in its inception.
With individual chip-timing, each participant’s pace is accurately measured regardless of where they start in the runners’ pack. Uses for proceeds are many, including the granting of over 800 youth sports scholarships to individuals and groups who have difficulty meeting the financial requirements of a sport, whether it be cheerleading outfits, football helmets or travel assistance. Proceeds also benefit our local senior community and student and teacher scholarships.
