13th Annual Lake Sunapee Turkey Trot 5K (run, jog, walk)
Now in its 13th year, the Lake Sunapee Turkey Trot has become a wonderful family tradition for more than 800 racers. Grab your family and friends, throw on a costume (optional, but really fun and highly encouraged), work off some calories, and make this great event a part of your Thanksgiving tradition!
Kids are invited to run a 1K Chicken Run down Lake Avenue, and every participant receives a medal!
All proceeds benefit Sunapee Recreation Department.
*ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN*
Racers can also register in person on the evening before the race or on race day from 7:00 to 8:00 am. Every racer needs to fill out a race application, sign a waiver form, and collect a bib and pins in order to receive a time.
PICKING UP RACE BIBS AND T SHIRTS
Bibs and pins can be picked up at Pre-Registration on Wednesday, November 27 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm at the Harbor House Livery. They can also be picked up on race day (November 28 from 7:00-8:00 am); however, due to a large number of people registering on race day, we urge racers to pick up their bibs and pins at the pre-registration.
Register by November 8th to get a FREE race shirt!!
SPTO PIE SALE!
The Sunapee Parent Teacher Organization will hold a pie sale during the Pre-Registration as well as on race day. Pies will be $10 each, and it is a great way to support the SPTO as well as get out having to bake!
If you would like to donate a pie to the sale, please drop it off as of 4:00 pm on November 27 at a location to be determined. Please indicate if your pie has nuts so we can be careful of allergies. Thank you!
BRING YOUR OWN BOTTLE
In an effort to reduce waste, water stations at the start and finish lines. Please bring your own reusable bottle, and fill up whenever you’re thirsty.
Limited parking is available at the Sunapee Post Office, Sunapee Town Office, Lake Sunapee Protective Association, Garnet Hill Road, Sunapee Sherburne Gym, and the parking lot adjacent to the start line. We recommend carpooling with friends and family where possible.

We love dogs, and they need their exercise, too. However dogs do present an element of risk that we cannot bear, so it is necessary to leave your furry friends at home for this event.
