Turkey Trot a Thanksgiving Tradition Since 1967




The Dallas YMCA will celebrate the golden anniversary of its signature Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot at 9 a.m., November 23, at Dallas City Hall. Nearly 30,000 participants are expected to turn out for the eight-mile race and 5K fun run. There is the option for all participants to be chip-timed in both the eight-mile and 5k race with a $5 timing charge and a timed runner corral. All eight-mile runners will receive commemorative finisher medals.

The Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot benefits YMCA programs that help strengthen the foundation of the community. The excitement that surrounds this event continues to grow each year as more runners and generations of families turn out to experience the fun and family-friendly atmosphere that is the backdrop to the race.
