The 5K is timed and scored by Best Racing System using B-Tag technology. Results will be posted at www.BestRace.com. Both gun and chip times will be provided.
|Important Notice :
||We will be incorporating many new exciting virtual/online elements to the Trot this year. Please be aware that if health and safety pandemic concerns do not allow for us to gather together in person on Thanksgiving morning, we will be converting the event day portion of the event to a Virtual 5K. In the event of a mandated limited attendance event, registrants will be invited to attend in-person based on registration date until we fill capacity. All other registrants will be welcomed to "attend" our virtual 5K that day. No refunds will be offered due to a shift from live event to virtual event. *Please note that all activities, on or before race day, are contingent upon health and safety considerations as determined by the State of NJ, County of Morris, Township of Morris, Parks Department, Police Department, Health Department, Sports Action Reaction LLC, USA Track & Field, Literacy Volunteers of Morris County, and the Interfaith Food Pantry.
