Turkey Trot

BRATTLEBORO -- The Brattleboro Turkey Trot will be held on Thanksgiving Day, with a one-mile kids’ race at 9 a.m., followed by a three-mile race at 9:15 a.m. Both courses are out-and-back on Upper Dummerston Road, starting and ending near the Brattleboro Country Club.

There’s no entry fee, but participants should bring a food item (canned goods, baked goods, dessert, something Thanksgiving related, etc.). The race directors collect the food items when the runners check in and put everything in the back of a truck, and then runners pick out an item as their "award" after they finish.

If you want to be included in the official results, you must preregister by Wednesday, Nov. 21. Those who don’t preregister can still run, but won’t be given a bib number. Visit www.redcloverrovers.com to register, or contact Bob Aube at 802-896-9424.
