31st Annual Trot for Tots

Celebrate Possibilities and All Abilities at the 31st Annual Trot for Tots

The Trot for Tots is less about making record time (but you can on our flat, fast,  USATF certified course) – and more about having a great time while making an impact that will resonate far into the future for thousands of children in Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire.

We are excited to celebrate our 31st year of the Trot on Sunday, October 1, 2023 at 32 Osgood Street in Andover. The 5K race kicks off at 10:00 a.m. and the 1M walk follows.  After our 5K race and 1M Walk, participants are encouraged to join us at our post-trot celebration including light food options, music, kids activities and so much more.

For those who cannot join us on Oct. 1st, but still want to make a positive impact in the lives of children, we will offer a virtual option.  Participants can run or walk in a location of their choosing any time between Sat. Sept. 23rd- Sun. Oct. 1st.

In addition to the race, we encourage you to create a team and reach out to your friends, families, neighbors and colleagues to raise the vital funds needed to maximize outcomes for every child PCD serves.

Be creative and have fun! Share your goals, progress and results with pictures on social media. Get your community involved! Top fundraising teams will receive prizes!
