Krogh's 9th Annual Turkey Trot


The SEF will be collecting non-perishable items for a Food Drive at the Turkey Trot. Please bring your donations to the Turkey Trot Packet Pickup, Registration and Pasta Party on Wednesday night, November 25 from 5-8 pm or to Registration on Thanksgiving morning starting at 7 am. Donations will be accepted at the Lake Mohawk Country Club on both days. All proceeds will benefit a local food pantry.

On-line registration is now CLOSED. See you all at the starting line!

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 2015 event will be Thursday, November 26. 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 Instagram and share your pictures and experiences with the community.
