Sixth Annual Princeton Turkey Trot to Be Held Thanksgiving Morning

turkeytrotThe sixth annual Turkey Trot 5K race and walk will be held in Princeton on Thanksgiving morning.

The event is sponsored by Trinity Church in Princeton, and all proceeds benefit local charities. Last year the event raised a record-breaking $25,300. The proceeds support The Crisis Ministry of Mercer County, Urban Promise Trenton, Housing Initiatives of Princeton and the Trenton Children’s Chorus.

The church also collects canned goods for the Crisis Ministry food pantry at the event.

A family friendly run/walk race through Princeton, the turkey trot has become a tradition in many Princeton households.

The event starts at 8:30 a.m. at Trinity Church, which is located at 33 Mercer Street in downtown Princeton.

Homemade pies and other prizes will be awarded to winners on race day.

You can register online at trinityturkeytrot.org.  Registration is $30 online. Registration on site Thanksgiving morning is $35. T-Shirts will be supplied to all pre-registrants while supplies last.
