Runners Trotting Together Again At Naperville Turkey Trot 2021

Over 5,000 runners took part in this year’s Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving morning. After we switched to a virtual setup last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone was happy to be trotting together again.

Again personally

“Last year, in the virtual race, we actually had people on the track on Thanksgiving morning who were just having fun, but it just wasn’t the same,” said Donna Kearney, former president of the Naperville Noon Lions. “Getting in touch with the people of Naperville and seeing the happy families out here makes a huge difference.”

The 24-year Naperville Noon Lions Club 3 mile run and walk began punctually at 8:00 am in front of Naperville Central High School.

Runners seemed to have a little more momentum in their stride, knowing it was for a good cause. Since the start of the trot in 1998, the Noon Lions have used the funds raised to provide low vision, hearing and diabetes support to families in Naperville.

Turkey trot tradition

And after 24 years the tradition gives many families a smooth start to the holiday season.

“So we have Thanksgiving here every year, and the Lions Turkey Trot is one of the things we do every year, year after year,” said turkey rioter Beth Ferstl along with her family. “It’s our favorite tradition; we’re from Wisconsin, he’s from Kansas, and we’re doing the turkey rut to start Thanksgiving. “

A turkey trot good time for everyone.

“Happy Thanksgiving!” said the Ferstl family.
