It's the 20th anniversary year for one of Bayside Historical Society's most beloved events! Our annual TOTTEN TROT 5K is a waterfront course in historic Fort Totten Park on Little Neck Bay in Bayside, a pristine stretch surrounding a preserved Civil War fortress. Runners will pass through the Historic District, which consists of buildings dating to the late 1800s. The Fort is situated where the Long Island Sound meets the East River at the Throgs Neck Bridge. The start and finish are located at the landmarked Officers' Club, home of Bayside Historical Society. The course includes a loop out onto Little Bay Path to the Throgs Neck Bridge and back to the Fort. Timing and scoring are provided by elitefeats on a USATF Certified Course.

KIDS' FUN RUN 10:00am: A short-distance sprint for tiny tots and kids up to 12, grouped by age category. Special "Cookie Medals" for participants in the Fun Run! Sign up on race day; $5.00 suggested donation. 

Halloween costumes highly encouraged for both adults and kids!

Amenities & Awards for the 5K race include:
• Cash prizes for top three overall male and female winners
• 1st place trophies & 2nd place and 3rd place medals

This year's Totten Trot will feature a special guest appearance by the 501st Legion's Empire City Garrison, a worldwide Star Wars costuming organization!

After the race, there will be a presentation of awards in the historic ballroom of the landmarked Officers' Club ("The Castle").
