Thank-you Volunteers

Volunteers are essential to the success of any great event. They are vital in providing a safe, organized and fun race. It takes more than 380 volunteers who give their time and share their talents by assisting at Packet Pickup, Water Stations, Start/Finish Line, Gear Check, First Aid, Course Marshalls, Greeters, Post-race Breakfast, and Cleanup.

You are the reason the Naperville Noon Lions has been able to help over 4,000 children and families in Naperville with vision and hearing care and diabetes support since our first run in 1998.  Join us again this year and be part of Naperville’s Thanksgiving tradition. Run or walk the fast flat course through downtown Naperville. Register early to avoid disappointment. Registration limited to 7,500 – the race has sold out every year for the past 7 years.

Run Fast, EAT LATER, No Penalty!

The Naperville Noon Lions Turkey Trot 5K is partially funded by a grant from the City of Naperville.
