It’s almost time to lace up your sneakers and move your feet before you eat... and we're back at Ritter Park!

The 16th annual Huntington Turkey Trot is back to an in-person event at Ritter Park! On Thursday, November 24th, 2022 we'll be having a great time with anyone that wants to have fun, enjoy each other, get some fresh air, and help animals! Families, visitors, kids, strollers, and pets are welcome! Our 5K fun run/walk supports the Little Victories Animal Rescue Group. We'll get started with registration between 8:00 and 8:45 a.m. on race day and start trotting at 9:00 a.m. Please be sure to meet everyone at the Ritter Park Picnic Shelter.

Our Charity

For the 16th straight year, all proceeds from the Huntington Turkey Trot will benefit Little Victories Animal Rescue Group.

COVID-19 has forced Little Victories to cancel major fundraisers while the dedicated staff still struggles to provide shelter, vet care, and love for an ever-growing number of homeless pets in need of forever families.

We are determined to carry on the Huntington Turkey Trot tradition of compassion, caring, and support for Little Victories. Please help us help more shelter pets by making this our biggest fundraiser ever!

You can drop off cans or bags of pet food for Little Victories at the t-shirt pickup (more info below).

A really good boy!
