Supporting excellent charitable causes
Joppa Flats Running Club
Promoting Running, Racing & Volunteerism
With a mission to provide financial contributions and road race support to charities in Greater Newburyport, the Joppa Flats Running Club (JFRC) encourages its members to volunteer with charitable organizations within the running community.
The JRFC’s main event is the annual Newburyport-Maudslay Turkey Trot 5k Trail Race. A tradition that started in 1989, the Turkey Trot takes place each year on Thanksgiving Day. Proceeds are donated to the Pettengill House, Opportunity Works and Our Neighborhood Table.
And with many nonprofits hosting road races as fundraisers, the JFRC also provides road support including race timing and finish line aid at these events, saving local charities thousands.
