Sparta 5kKrogh's 8th Annual Turkey Trot

Welcome to the official page of the Kroghs Turkey Trot--one of Sparta's best loved events and our annual "Tradition Before the Tradition." What better way to spend a beautiful Thanksgiving morning than with other members of the community who share a common goal...supporting strong public schools.

Produced by Sparta Education Foundation, the Krogh's Turkey Trot has become New Jersey's 5th largest 5k run and proceeds from the race benefit the Sparta public schools. Our 2014 event will be Thursday, November 27. Registration is now open!

So before your guests arrive, before football starts, and before you feast, come walk, run, jog, skip or trot and have fun while making a difference!

Don't forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and share your pictures and experiences with the community.


We'd like to thank all our sponsors who help make this event a success. A special thanks to:
