It is an annual Thanksgiving Day tradition in New Paltz and a great way to earn all those calories for later. It also helps a great organization during the holiday season. I am talking about the Annual New Paltz Turkey Trot to benefit Family of New Paltz.

The New Paltz Turkey Trot is fun for the whole family. There is still time to register and volunteer or just come down a support this family fun run. Click here to get more information about this great event that helps our community. The course is runner and walker friendly. You leave from Water Street Market head down Water Street to Plains Road and then back up the Rail Trail to Water Street Market for the finish line.

Registration is at 8am and their is a Mashed Potato fun run for the kids at 9am. The are prizes and awards and of course fun for everyone. The crew at the Mudd Puddle will be there bright and early with refreshments.
