Red Clover Rovers

Brattleboro Turkey Trot and Food Drive

In memory of Jerry Gagliardi (1943-2018)

FREE RACE run annually since 1977! This is the Red Clover Rovers' gift to Brattleboro-area runners, celebrating moving in the fresh air and joining together as an active community. Come run the classic annual 3-miler on Upper Dummerston Road (1-mile kids' race beforehand!). The race starts and ends near the Brattleboro Country Club. This is 100% volunteer-run and donation-funded, so there is no race-day registration! Please register below by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 27.

There is no entry fee again this year, but we're asking for small donations to help pay race costs -- bibs, timing chips and port-a-pottie rental. You can make a donation while registering, and we are so grateful for your support.

You must preregister to be timed.

Check-in and bib number pickup is Thanksgiving morning from 8 to 8:45 a.m. Please be on time to check in, as we sometimes have more than 300 participants. Give yourself a few extra minutes to navigate the busy Country Club parking lot! (Also dress appropriately, as it may be COLD!)

PLEASE BRING A FOOD DONATION! For the fourth year running, let's spread the giving by bringing a nonperishable food item to donate to the local food shelf, Groundworks Collaborative. We will collect food items at the bib pickup point and bring them to Groundworks after the race. You can also learn more and make a donation online at, or bring cash donations on race-day and we'll give it directly to Groundworks along with the food.

Strollers are welcome; no dogs please. The road will be open, so runners/walkers need to keep to the left and be aware of traffic.

Co-race directors: Katherine Innis and Deena Chadwick
