The 2023 Bitters & Bones Turkey Trot is ready to run! Join in the fun and dive deep to help us support two of our favorite local causes! Proceeds from the Turkey Trot are split evenly between the Saranac Lake Interfaith Food Pantry and the Saranac Lake Student Needs Fund. Great causes. Great prizes. It doesn't get better than that!
With both a month-long virtual competition and an epic in-person race on Thanksgiving Day, there is no excuse for not participating. Whether you pound pavement, bolt down beaches, or tackle trails, all you need to do is run your feathers off this November. Cap off your month of movement on Thanksgiving morning with a festive pre-feast frolicking 5K through downtown Saranac Lake, complete with refreshments, auctions, and an amazing community of family, friends, and friends who feel like family.
If the health benefits of exercise and the satisfaction of philanthropic giving isn't enough to get you hooked, there are also prizes! The runner that banks the most bucks from sponsors and the Trotter with the most miles logged will both win a $1,000 Bitters gift card! That's two chances to win, so get your gobbler in gear and trot your tush toward glory. And be sure to call your friends, your family, and your estranged uncle Bob and encourage them to dive deep into their wallets for those sweet, sweet sponsor donations.
Last year we raised $90,000, so we've got some serious fundraising to do if we want to set a new Trot record!!

WHAT MAKES SARANAC LAKE SO SPECIAL? IT'S A...
LITTLE TOWN with a LOTTA HEART
Trot Your Own Course
Run the course, around the block, or on a nearby trail. Hike a mountain, walk the dog, or run on the beach. Any miles count, no matter where you are, as long as they're covered using your own two feet. Track your miles and push yourself farther - the runner with the most miles will win one of two Turkey Trot Grand Prizes!
Then, on Thanksgiving morning, Saranac Lake's best and bravest will rise from their beds, lace their shoes, maybe drink a toddy or two, and take over the streets of our little mountain town to show the world what a little town with a lotta heart can accomplish when we work together!
