Thanksgiving Day 10-K

Welcome to the home of the best, most authentic, small town Thanksgiving day running event in Northwest Connecticut. 2020 marks the 43rd year of the Goshen Turkey Trot, first organized by a group of local friends in the 1970's. THE Turkey Trot attracts enthusiasts for exercise, enthusiasts for all of the magical intangibles of our wonderful community, and enthusiasts for Thanksgiving! Don't just check the box. Do Thanksgiving right by partaking in this very special tradition.

The year 2020 has been extraordinary in many ways. Due to the health risks of COVID-19 our event this year will be virtual. Yet we feel this year - perhaps even more than usual - it is very important for us to find some unity, some genuine camaraderie among our friends and family. As celebrate Thanksgiving this year, as you log your running and walking miles, as you participate in this wonderful tradition, please be well and take responsible precautions.

We are excited to keep some of our normal traditions very much alive! We are offering a drive through t-shirt pick up on Thanksgiving morning with our classic hot apple cider & delicious donuts! Details of that will be provided as we get closer to the big day.

We'll also be giving awards out (including pies, turkeys and gift certificates) and hosting virtual challenges to keep our community engaged and in the spirit! So register, get your friends and family members to register, join the Goshen Running Club's group on Strava, and keep an eye out for emails and our posts on Instagram and Facebook (@goshenturkeytrot).

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
