This 16th Annual West Morris Central Turkey Trot 5k event continues the tradition of the WMC Memorial Race that began in 2007 in memory of Kyleigh D’Alessio and Tanner Birch. The race has also expanded to honor the memories of Stephen Berstler and Paul Heembrock. All four were WMC student athletes.  Participants find this to be a great way to start their Thanksgiving Day and to spend the day remembering their local roots and renewing friendships.  

Competitors from Washington Township, Chester, Mendham, Randolph, Hackettstown, Califon, High Bridge, and other nearby towns find this to be a great alternative to traveling to far away Turkey Trot races.  Serious runners can compete for awards for the first three males and females 12 years old and above and the first three males and females under 12 years of age.  Don’t sit home Thanksgiving morning, join us for 5K of fun and exercise.  You may even see a Turkey or Santa Claus along the way.  There is plenty of free parking as well as restrooms.  Look for photo opportunities with “Trotter” the race mascot and group photos with our turkey themed face cutouts.  Run, walk, or watch it is a great event to enjoy and support.
