8K Competitive Race, 100 Yard Kid's Dash
We heard your feedback and have redesigned and USATF-Certified the 8K route.
The race will now start on Ridge Road and the start line will be 50% wider for less congestion.
- Family Fun:
Bring the family to the Ridgewood Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning.
Events include competitive and recreational 8K's and a 100-yard Kid's Dash (age 7 and under). During the 8K, kids can decorate the finish chute road with sidewalk chalk or make signs to cheer for mom or dad.
This year there will not be a 1 Mile Fun Run in order to get everyone home to Thanksgiving dinner sooner and give shoppers easier access to Whole Foods for that last-minute holiday shopping.
Online registration price of the Kid's dash to just $3. Kids will be $10 on race day, so be sure to register online.
Bring all of your out-of-town family & friends!
