Due to the current health crisis, the 8th Annual 2020 Rotary Club of Orange 5K Turkey Trot & Fun Walk has gone Virtual.  A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym, or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.  In addition to RunSignUp, we will be using their app, which you can download to your phone, called RaceJoy, which was created specifically for running.  Features include live phone tracking, GPS progress alerts, results, race information, photos, Send-a-Cheer and much more!  Participants will be given 1 week, from Saturday November 21 to Saturday November 28, 2020 to complete the 5K and submit results to our timer, Northeast Sports Timing Service. 

Over the years, the Turkey Trot has generated tens of thousands of dollars that go directly to the numerous charitable causes that we at Rotary Club of Orange support. Needless to say, there are numerous benefactors who count on us to help fund important initiatives and projects that serve the needs of countless numbers of people in need locally, regionally, nationally and globally. At RCO, we strongly feel that our work must continue, because due to the current situation, those we serve are more in need than ever. 

This year, given the extraordinary circumstances stemming from the pandemic that we all find ourselves in, we had to wrestle with the decision as to whether to hold this event. After much discussion and research, we have determined that it is important to both attempt to find a suitable alternative to the Turkey Trot that would capture the spirit and tradition that has been created over the previous seven years of holding this event while maintaining what has undoubtedly become a wildly popular Thanksgiving institution in the Town of Orange.

This year because of the lower entry fee, we are charging for the commemorative shirts.  Shirts can be purchased online at  https://nanddshop.com/rotary/rotary-of-orange/2020-turkey-trot-virtual-race.html  All monies made will go to the numerous charitable causes that Rotary supports.  Thank you once again for your support.
