Bigger & Better Than Before

The 2022 Blackfoot Tater Trot is going to be bigger and better than ever before. 

Why you ask?

 Well for one thing, we have joined forces with the Rotary Club of Blackfoot. They are going to be helping with volunteers, raffle prizes, and fund raising for the CDT Christmas Box program and for Scholarships for Bingham county high school students.

Registration is now open – click here to register. We have added a discount code for groups of 4 or more, use CODE BTT2022. You can sign up your whole family,  your business, or running group and receive a modest discount. Finally, we are going to be adding a bunch of cool raffle prizes to this years event. So the chances of winning something should be even better then in past years. The deadline for getting a free t-shirt is September 24th, so please get signed up soon. The event is scheduled for Saturday October 8th at 8:00 am at the Jensen’s Grove Shelter in Blackfoot. 

Don’t be a couch potato; get signed up today and please help us spread the word. You can also help us by liking our FB Page Blackfoot Tater Trot.

Tater Trot for 2022 will be OCTOBER 8 – Register Now!

Registration is now open for the 12th Annual TATER TROT. Now held on the 2nd Saturday in October, this year that date is the 8th.


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!

2021 Tater Trot Nets $3,200 for Christmas Box Project

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.
