Get ahead of the holiday calories and take part in a family tradition at the YMCA Turkey Trot. Runners and walkers of all levels of ability are welcome. Choose from a 1-Mile Fun Run & Walk, a 5K Race and the 3 X 1-Mile Turkey Leg Relay (3 people on a relay team each run 1-mile during the 5K Race, following the same route).
Fun for all with a bounce house, costume contests and door prizes. In the 5K Race, the overall male and female finishers will each receive a frozen turkey. Age group winners will receive medals. All youth in any race will receive a finisher's ribbon. 3 X 1-Mile Relay category winners (all-male, all-female and co-ed) will receive prizes. Relay teams are eligible for a prize for best baton design and best team costume.
Don't forget about the "Turkey Chase" challenge for all 5K runners. Any individual beating our "Turkey" to the finish line will receive a "I Smoked the Turkey" car window sticker. Here's your chance to smoke a turkey before you even step foot into the kitchen Thanksgiving morning!
Strollers are allowed in the 1-Mile and the 5K. However, for the safety of all, we ask that you start at the back of the start line and stay next to the curb along the course.
Dogs are not allowed on the course during any of the races.
