2021 Tater Trot Nets $3,200 for Christmas Box Project

We would like to thank our running community, our volunteers (including our race directors – Christian Utley & Randy Shiosaki), and our corporate sponsors for the success of this year’s Tater Trot.

Even though the day started out a bit rainy, it was wonderful to again have a live event and a chance to gather for such a great cause. We had 69 runners register for this year’s event, help raise money for the CDT Christmas box project, and have some fun in the process. There’s nothing like a hot baked potato and a chance to win one of several dozen nice raffle prizes!

The event netted a $3,200 donation to the CDT for the Christmas box project which provides a full Christmas dinner to families in Bingham County. For more information on this project, please contact the Blackfoot Community Food Pantry.

Below are the top finishers in each of the categories. Congratulations to each of you!
