See you November 24th at the 2022 Rotary Turkey Trot! 

Thanks to all of our runners and walkers who made the 21st annual Northfield Rotary Turkey Trot such a success.
More than 1,000 people took part in this marquee event and helped raise funds for our Youth Exchange Program, Polio Plus and both local and international service projects.
Congratulations to our race winners: Noah Revels of Farmington, first in the Men’s division at 16:05.9, and Sarah Nicholson of Northfield in the Women’s division at 19:03.2. Both have bragging rights until Thanksgiving of next year.

Be sure to save the date for next year’s 5K Thanksgiving Turkey Trot. We will be looking for you on Thursday, Nov. 24. Registration will open in early October. Until then, keep moving and keep supporting Rotary projects.
The Northfield Rotary Turkey Trot is Northfield’s unofficial homecoming for the 1000-plus runners and walkers who participate each year, a “must-do” for those who want to connect with old friends and neighbors and be reminded that Northfield is always home. Runners of all levels, walkers, parents with kids in strollers and dog owners walking their best friends are invited to join the fun.
The chip-timed 5K event begins at 9 a.m. sharp at the Carleton College Weitz Center on Third Street between College and Winona, weaves through Northfield’s northeast neighborhood, through the Northfield Golf Club’s course along Spring Creek Road and back to the Weitz Center along Prairie and Seventh streets. Awards will be given to the top male and female runners. 
This year’s event will benefit several Rotary programs, including youth exchange, polio eradication, and a number of Northfield Rotary’s international projects. Rotary will also be collecting food for Northfield Food Shelf. Non-perishable food donations can be dropped off the morning of the race or when you pick up your bibs and T-shirts.
