The event was established 12 years ago to help the Community Dinner Table, “CDT”, fund its annual Christmas box distribution for those in our community who needed help during the holiday season. The CDT has helped more than 4,500 families with a nice food box for Christmas over the last twelve years. The need is still here, and your help is needed now more than ever before.
We will have 5 and 10 K events for both runners and walkers. There is also a kids ½ mile fun run. Join us for a fun event at Jenson’s Grove Shelter in Blackfoot, and let’s together help our neighbors have a great holiday season. There will be awards and raffle prizes! Be sure to click the link above and register for our annual Tater Trot!
We would like to thank our running community, our volunteers (including our race directors – Christian Utley & Randy Shiosaki), and our corporate sponsors for the success of this year’s Tater Trot.
Even though the day started out a bit rainy, it was wonderful to again have a live event and a chance to gather for such a great cause. We had 69 runners register for this year’s event, help raise money for the CDT Christmas box project, and have some fun in the process. There’s nothing like a hot baked potato and a chance to win one of several dozen nice raffle prizes!
The event netted a $3,200 donation to the CDT for the Christmas box project which provides a full Christmas dinner to families in Bingham County. For more information on this project, please contact the Blackfoot Community Food Pantry.
