The Chatham Turkey Trot
 The Chatham Turkey Trot


Dear Neighbors & Friends,


I invite you to join us on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 25, 2021 for the 13th Annual Chatham Turkey Trot. The event consists of a 1 Mile Family Fun Run and a USA Track & Field certified 5K Race that takes participants through the scenic Highlands section of Chatham Township, NJ.


Each year, The Chatham Turkey Trot attracts upwards of 1,000 runners who help raise funds for our first responders and diabetes research and education including the Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department, the Diabetes Research Institute, The Barton Center for Diabetes Education, and the Chatham Emergency Squad. Since 2009, we have raised nearly $200,000 from the generous support of our sponsors, donors, and runners. 


Over the years, the Chatham Turkey Trot has become a family holiday tradition that offers expert and novice runners alike the opportunity to spend time with family, friends, and neighbors, to raise funds for our first responders and diabetes research and education, and to break a sweat before the big meal.


I encourage you navigate through our website to learn more about our beneficiaries, to view photos and videos of past Turkey Trots, and to read about the local businesses who have supported our efforts over the years. If you have an interest in sponsoring the Turkey Trot please email us at


I look forward to seeing you on Thanksgiving Day


Best regards, 


Curt Ritter
