10th Annual 5k Turkey Trot Run/Jog/Walk
Join the Rifle High School Track and Field team in celebrating the 10th Annual Rifle High School Turkey Trot! Come and join local families and others from around the country for the fun where you can run, walk, or jog your way around the course. Support the Rifle High School Track and Field Team by running a 5k before you partake in all of the wonderful Thanksgiving Day Goodies. We're hosting this FUNraiser in hopes of raising enough money to help buy new track equipment, including, a safety discus cage.
Last year we had participants from states that included Arizona and Texas. We are excited for the opportunity to host a community/country event and get people out and about to enjoy this great holiday together. Because of the huge success of last year’s virtual trot, we will have this as an option again for those who are not going to be around Rifle on Thanksgiving. Virtual runners will have the opportunity to upload their times before Sunday the 28th. For those who will be in Rifle come on down and show up at Deer Field Park on Thursday, November 25th, 2021 to walk, jog or run with all of us in person. We encourage you to get out on Thanksgiving morning and support a great cause while spending quality time with family and friends.
