Krogh's 9th Annual Turkey Trot

On-line registration is now open!  Register Now or view the Registration page for more details.

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.
