Boys & Girls Club of Ridgefield 39th Annual Turkey Trot

It wouldn't be Thanksgiving in Ridgefield without the Boys & Girls Club Turkey Trot! We hope you will join us this year, but VIRTUALLY!

With the restrictions of COVID-19, the logistics of proper safety (always our top priority) for over 1200 runners and an additional 1200 spectators simply isn't feasible.  For almost 40 years, the Boys & Girls Club's Turkey Trot has been an annual tradition for so many - it truly wouldn't feel like Ridgefield without the Turkey Trot, and although a virtual format will be much different, it will still allow us to hold this beloved Ridgefield event!

We know it won't be the same, but by moving the Turkey Trot to a Virtual Format you can run anywhere you choose, (literally anywhere in the world you are celebrating Thanksgiving!), within the time frame, as long as it equals 5k (3.1 miles)!  All Turkey Trotters will be able to race and record their registration time from Saturday, November 21st at 8am through Thanksgiving evening, Thursday, November 26th at Noon 12pm.

We can't wait to see where our favorite Turkey Trotters are running from this year!  For those that like to run the traditional Turkey Trot route, we will have the race route marked for you and the Turkey Trot map on display in our parking lot.  Of course, if we see you out there running we will cheer you on!!

All Turkey Trotters will be able to race and record their registration time from Saturday, November 21st through Thanksgiving evening, Thursday, November 26th at 8pm.  Race results will then be posted on our website (, our social media pages, and on Ridgefield's HamletHub, our Turkey Trot Media Sponsor.
