It’s almost time to lace up your sneakers and move your feet before you eat... and we're back at Ritter Park!
The 17th annual Huntington Turkey Trot is back to an in-person event at Ritter Park! On Thursday, November 23rd, 2023 we'll be having a great time with anyone who 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 7:30 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.
For the 17th straight year, all proceeds from the Huntington Turkey Trot will benefit Little Victories Animal Rescue Group.
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).
