2020 Bonfield Turkey Trot (A VIRTUAL RACE)
From the charming streets, to the tight knit communities and the vibrant downtown, this race has it all. The annual Bonfield Express 5K Thanksgiving Day race is one of the many events that makes this community so special. Runners, walkers and kids in strollers normally come out in droves despite cold November temps. There's a fantastic energy in the air (not to mention the fun of neighbors along the race course that pass out donut holes and pump out fun music!) that kicks off Thanksgiving in such a wonderful way.
Unfortunately, our race will look a little different this year as a virtual experience. But we still encourage community members and past participants to register to take part in a virtual race on a course of your own choosing.
TEMPORARY T-SHIRT OFFER! MUST REGISTER BY OCTOBER 5TH!
Love the Bonfield Express race shirts? If you register early this year, you can still receive one! You must register by October 5th and select a shirt size during registration. This option will disappear after October 5th and you will not be able to receive a long sleeve tech t-shirt.
This race has many proud sponsors that are happy to support this organization that finds such meaningful ways to help local schools and students. Since 2004, the Bonfield Express Foundation has given over $500,000 in scholarships to 182 seniors at six local high schools in Downers, Westmont, Lisle and Hinsdale. The organization also recently donated $1,000 to each of the District 58 schools.
Event details and schedule
Race t-shirts will be distributed to early registrants at the Lincoln Center (935 Maple Ave. Downers Grove) at a date/time to be determined. Please continue to check our website for up to the minute news on this process. Thank you for your patience as we navigate these unprecedented times.
