Naperville Noon Lions Turkey Trot – Virtual 5K

For more than 23 years, the Naperville Noon Lions Turkey Trot 5K has welcomed citizens of Naperville and area communities as they join with their friends and families to enjoy a little exercise before celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday. Due to public health risks brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, as well as the restrictions placed on gatherings by the State of Illinois, we are not able to hold an in-person race safely.  We invite you to keep your holiday traditions by joining our Virtual Turkey Trot 5K.  Pick your favorite course and run it any time between November 14-29, 2020. We will send you a fun race shirt and 2020 race decal. Send us your results and photos and we’ll celebrate you on our Facebook page and on Instagram.

The Naperville Noon Lions Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) charity, and all proceeds are donated within Naperville to help Naperville children and seniors receive the hearing and vision care they cannot afford. We have been honored to put on this race which typically sees 6,000 people out to enjoy each others company while getting some exercise Thanksgiving morning. We hope that if you are not able to join this virtual event that you will consider donating to support our Social Services programs at https://napervillenoonlions.org. Thank you.

You decide! Run or walk a 5K anywhere you like – your favorite, the flattest or most picturesque route of your choice.

And you can nip the bad weather complaints at the same time!

You are the reason the Naperville Noon Lions has been able to help over 4,000 children and families in Naperville with vision and hearing care and diabetes support since our first run in 1998.  Join us virtually this year and be part of Naperville’s Thanksgiving tradition. Run or walk 5K any where any time between November 14-29, 2020. Then celebrate your accomplishment with us by sending us your results and photos. We’ll post them from the 26th-29th in the spirit of Thanksgiving.
