New Paltz Turkey Trot

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in, sponsored and supported our 16th Annual Family of New Paltz Turkey Trot!! We are so grateful to our amazing community and wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Results and finish line photos are available here.

The Family of New Paltz Turkey Trot is a 5K run and walk held annually Thanksgiving morning to support Family of New Paltz’s Food Pantry and Crisis Services. Building on the success of previous years, this year’s event will include prizes for best costumes, tee shirts for adults and children, and of course the famous Mashed Potato Fun Run, which is free for kids 12 and under. For the more serious runners, the 5K course will be certified by USATF this year, and will include chip timed start and finish. As part of the package provided by the chip-timing company, photos of individual runners crossing the finish line will be available for upload at no cost. Age groups this coming year will be in ten-year increments, and medals will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each age group, with separate awards for male and female.

This year’s Turkey Trot is being held in memory of Kathy Cartagena, former Program Director of Family of New Paltz. Kathy worked with the agency for 23 years, until her retirement in May 2016. She passed away August 26th, and she is greatly missed.
