THE BLACKFOOT TATER TROT IS AN ANNUAL 5K AND 10K RUN AND WALK TO SUPPORT BLACKFOOT’S CHRISTMAS BOX PROJECT.
ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO THE COMMUNITY DINNER TABLE CHRISTMAS BOX PROGRAM.
This is the 10th year that our community has supported this fun run, and nearly 4000 Christmas boxes have been given out during this time frame! The need is still here, and your help is needed more than ever before.
WHEN? WHERE? HOW?
This year’s fun run will be held Saturday, November 7. Given the challenges raised by covid-19, and in order to keep everyone safe, we’ve decided that this year’s event will be a “virtual” run/walk. Each individual will run or walk the 5K or 10K on their own rather than as a group. You can run/walk the regular course (markers will be posted on the course the day of the event), or just go make up your own course. You can even run/walk the appropriate distance on your treadmill at home! Kids can do a 1K fun run. You can still donate to a great cause, get a t-shirt if you desire, and go run on Saturday November 7th. Then you simply upload your results on the Active site (see “registration” below) when you are finished.
This year we will be having a raffle for all registered runners. Prizes so far include pre-paid visa gift cards from Idaho Central Credit Union, and gift cards from Rupes, Tommy Vaughn’s, and Homestead Farms Restaurant, and a full detail compliments of Bower’s Collision. We will also still be awarding the coveted Mr. / Mrs. Potato Head trophies for the top finishers in each category.
T-SHIRTS & REGISTRATION
The cost this year is only $20, with an option to get one of the cool Tater t-shirts for an additional $10. The t-shirts will be ordered, and then distributed at Alsco at a time to be determined after the event. Details on that will be sent to you after registration. Please register as soon as possible – and before November 6th. To register, click here.
