The 14th Annual Krogh's Turkey Trot, a major fundraiser for the Sparta Education Foundation (SEF), is accepting online registrations now at "This year we are continuing the 14th Annual Turkey Trot with a little twist as a virtual Turkey Trot," said Donna West, President of the SEF. "We are celebrating 'the tradition before the tradition' in a very different way during this very different year. Help us spread the word and tell your friends and family from across town or across the globe. We'd love to see how far we can spread one of our favorite traditions now that we're virtual."

After registering online for either the Turkey Trot 5K or 1-mile Fun Run, runners will have the week leading up to Thanksgiving to run and submit their Virtual Results; submissions will be accepted beginning Monday, November 19 through midnight on Thanksgiving Day. Cost is $25 for the 5K and $10 for the 1-mile Fun Run. Participants 17 and under will receive $5 off their 5K entry, and USATF Members get a $3 discount.

Packet pickup takes place at Krogh's starting Monday, November 16 through Wednesday, November 25, visit for exact times. You can also choose to have the packet shipped to you when you register online. All Krogh's Turkey Trot participants receive:
· A custom Krogh's Turkey Trot neck gaiter
· A bag of sponsor-related goodies
· A printable MLB Residential Lending digital bib
· A printable Spavia finishers digital certificate
