Thanksgiving Day Two-Town Turkey Trot

Before you sit down to your Thanksgiving feast this year, work off some pre-dinner calories at the Second Annual Two Town Turkey Trot!

The streets of Lambertville, New Jersey and New Hope, Pennsylvania will fill with runners working up an appetite for their turkey dinners this Thanksgiving morning as the Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce holds the 5-kilometer Two Town Turkey Trot road race and 1-mile health walk on Thursday, November 23, 2017.

Race registration is $35 in advance online at: www.delawarerivertowns.com/run and $45 the day of the race. Proceeds will support the Chambers’ programs and Fisherman’s Mark, a local non-profit organization that serves those in need in all of the Delaware River Towns communities.

The race course has been approved by the governing bodies in both Lambertville and New Hope.  Course marshaling will be provided by the Lambertville and New Hope police departments and volunteers.

Businesses interested in sponsoring the race may contact the Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce at 609-397-0055 for sponsorship information.

The race will start promptly at 8 a.m. at the Lambertville Station. Runners are encouraged to arrive no later than 7:30 am and will be running rain, shine, or snow. Starting and ending in downtown Lambertville, the course will take runners across the historic and charming Lambertville-New Hope Bridge, through the streets of bustling and festive downtown New Hope, back across the bridge and through Lambertville’s historic downtown business district.  Runners will be electronically chip timed, the first 1000 participants who pre-register will receive a commemorative race shirt and medal.  Prizes will be awarded to the winners.

    Cannot register on line – last field “How did you hear about race?” won’t let me make a selection and it is a required field.
