Before the Thanksgiving Day feast begins on Thursday, Nov. 23, get your body moving and jump-start your metabolism at Krogh’s 11th annual Turkey Trot 5k/Youth 5k/1-mile Fun Run in Sparta.
The crisp fall weather, the smiling families, and buzz of community filling the air makes this one of our favorite 5ks in Sussex County! We’ve made this a family tradition of ours for the past few years. A run on Thanksgiving Day makes us feel less guilty about eating excessive amounts of calories, plus you just can’t beat being surrounded by the people in your community on this special day.
Pick up your race packet on Wed. Nov. 22 and stick around for the Sparta 5K Pasta Party, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Lake Mohawk Country Club. The race starts and ends in front of Krogh’s Restaurant & Brew Pub and all proceeds go to The Sparta Education Foundation.
