THE 2023 RACE

The Newton Turkey Trot is celebrating its 10th anniversary this November 2023! Thank you to all our sponsors, volunteers, and runners for their continued support over the past 10 years. Honoring those who have left us we're spreading the word to "Bring your sneakers everywhere." We continue to be inspired by having our runners in far-flung places, we want you to bring your sneakers everywhere and spread the love!


Join us on Saturday, November 18th at Zervas elementary school for our annual 5k on the beautiful, USATF Certified, Newton Turkey Trot 5k course and our1-mile kids fun run.

Our goals this November remain, as always, our youth’s awareness of health and wellness and of community service. We will be providing support to the Newton Food Pantry, the Centre Street Food Pantry and Journey Forward, a non-profit organization dedicated to bettering lives of those with spinal cord injuries or disability.

RACE FOR COMMUNITY

Ten Years of Giving

To-date, the Newton Turkey Trot has raised $163,000 to support its goals of youth awareness of health and wellness and of community service.  We will continue our partnership of providing support to the Newton Food Pantry and Journey Forward.

The Newton Food Pantry and Centre Street Food Pantry continue to do amazing things by putting food on our neighbors’ tables. Combined, the two pantries provide food and personal care products to over 3,200 residents of Newton and surrounding communities each month. Beginning this year, the NTT will support both Newton Food Pantries.

In 2023, we will continue our support Journey Forward. This non-profit has helped Ethan Wang of Newton, and others who have survived a severe spinal cord injury or disability with their intense exercise-based programs.

In 2022, the Newton Turkey Trot gifted $33,000 to these causes.

"Bring your sneakers everywhere."

On behalf of the Newton Turkey Trot runners, we have dedicated a bench to honor our dear friend Tim O'Brien, on Centre St. and Commonwealth Ave facing Heartbreak Hill. This was Tim's favorite hill to run up, and it was his tradition to run to the top just before midnight on New Year's Eve and to be the first one down in the new year. Many Newton community members also took part in the CPR classes in his honor. 

This year we want to continue to honor his memory and the memory of others we have lost by asking you to post the wonderful places you have traveled by "Bringing your sneakers everywhere." We have heard that our runners have traveled to Nice, Munich, Lisbon, Algarve, Ibiza, Brussels, Rome Marrakech, Interlaken, Madrid, Barcelona, London, Scotland, Singapore, Washington, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, New York, Colorado, California, Wisconsin, Georgia, Virginia, Florida, Washington DC.

We want to hear where you have been "Bringing your sneakers." Post your photos on our Instagram or Facebook pages.

...and More

The Newton Turkey Trot is a family event that has drawn more than 1,300 participants each year from our community and beyond. Our family of runners are continuing to enjoy running outside again and continuing to support our fundraising goals. The Newton Food Pantry, The Centre Street Food Pantry and Journey Forward need our support. We hope you will continue to support our race and your community.
