About Us

The Chatham Turkey Trot, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization (EIN 45-2241201). The Chatham Turkey Trot consists of a 1 Mile Family Fun Run and USA Track & Field certified 5K Race in which runners race through the scenic Highlands section of Chatham Township on Thanksgiving Day.


Since its inception in 2009, we have raised more than $180,000 benefiting the Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department, the Diabetes Research Institutethe Chatham Emergency Squad and The Barton Center for Diabetes Education


The race continues to grow each and every year as the Chatham community comes together to give thanks for all that we have and to raise funds for those dedicated to protecting and improving the lives of others. 


We remain grateful for the support of Chatham's residents, businesses and public officials who have made this a hallmark holiday tradition in Chatham.



Awards are presented to the top male and female and boy and girl (Under 13 years-old) finishers of the 5K Race; all 1 Mile Family Fun Run participants receive a ribbon and the top boy/girl (under 13) receive a trophy.
