Natural Awakenings Dallas -Fort Worth Metroplex Edition


51st Annual YMCA Turkey Trot

A Thanksgiving tradition since 1967, the Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot, one of the largest multi-event races in the country, will be held on November 22. Around 25,000 participants are expected to turn out to Dallas City Hall Plaza for the eight-mile race and 5K fun run. New for 2018 is a 1K Junior Trot for 6-to-11-year-olds. The Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot benefits YMCA programs that strengthen the foundation of our community.

The original Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot was held at the Old Fair Grounds back in the 1940s; but the long string of consecutive races began in 1967.
