The 2014 Chatham Turkey Trot had more than 750 runners registered and raised over $19,000 for the Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department and the Diabetes Research Institute making it our most successful race ever.

The Chatham Turkey Trot has become a family holiday tradition representing all that is truly great about the Chatham Township community.

On behalf of the Chatham Turkey Trot Race Committee, I want to thank our sponsors, runners, the DPW, the Fire Department, ChathamSTEM and the Chatham EMS for their support.

We are already looking forward to another great race next year.
