Before you sit down to your Thanksgiving feast this year, work off some pre-dinner calories at the debut Two Town Turkey Trot!Eventbrite - Two Town Turkey Trot 5K & 1 Mile Health Walk

The streets of Lambertville, New Jersey and New Hope, Pennsylvania will fill with runners working up an appetite for their turkey dinners this Thanksgiving morning as the Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce holds the inaugural 5-kilometer “Two Town Turkey Trot” road race and a 1-mile health walk on Thursday, November 24.
The race will start promptly at 8 a.m. and will be run rain, shine, or snow.
“It is our pleasure to bring this healthful, national tradition of a Thanksgiving Day run to the Delaware River Towns, and we are excited to present the first cross-state run to our region,” said Glenn Davis, Chamber President. “We know that the runners and spectators will love the beauty that is amplified this time of year in the downtowns of New Hope and Lambertville, and look forward to continuing this tradition annually on Thanksgiving.”
Starting and ending in downtown Lambertville, the course will take runners across the historic and charming Lambertville-New Hope Bridge, through the streets of bustling and festive downtown New Hope, back across the bridge and through Lambertville’s historic downtown business district.
“We are thrilled to expose a broader audience to the Delaware River Towns, and feel that creating a Turkey Trot through New Hope and Lambertville will be the perfect way to kick off the holiday season in these beautiful, historic communities,” said David Morgan, the Chamber Executive Director.
Here’s the course map:
Race registration is $35 in advance online at: and $45 the day of the race. Proceeds will support the Chambers’ programs and Fisherman’s Mark, a local non-profit organization that serves those in need in all of the Delaware River Towns communities.

  1. Good morning!
    I live in the river town of Morrisville PA. We are in the process of trying to revitalize our town. I think this kind of event would be fabulous for us. We have a bridge that crosses right into Trenton- set up very similiar to New Hope/Lambert ille. For whatever reason it has been difficult to get positive things going here. We have recently received some grants for Canal restoration and some other things but I am really excited about getting a Turkey Trot going here! Is there someone I could talk to get more information and some advice???

  2. Hello,
    where do we park if we plan on running the 5k???? I hope it’s free parking that day. Please let me know..Thanks!

  3. You will be able to register same day from 7AM to 7:40AM. This is a hard close as the race will start at 8:00AM.

  4. I registered the day of the race. It was announced that race shirts would be ordered for anyone who didn’t get one and that we would be notified by email. Is that still happening and, if so, when can we expect to hear?

  5. I will be in New Hope for Thanksgiving this year and saw the Turkey Trot ad but I cant find where to register for the event for 2017. Is the site open yet or am I just too early. Please give me updates and let me know how to register please. Dee Decker

Shad’Toberfest Canceled

As you may have heard, Lambertville was devastated by flooding from Ida.
We decided to cancel Shad’Tober. The decision was not reached lightly. However, we could not burden the already stressed infrastructure of the City. The festival brings thousands of visitors to Lambertville and that burden would not help our City right now. The need in Lambertville is great with over half the homes in the City affected by Hurricane Ida’s unprecedented flooding. There are some people that will spend a year getting their house back to a livable condition and some who will never return to their beloved homes because of the severe damage they sustained. In light of this tragedy, we are working on a fundraiser to benefit those flood victims hit hardest by
Hurricane Ida. Stay tuned for details.
