The 55th annual Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot, one of the largest multi-event races in the country, will take place on Thursday, November 24. A tradition that takes place annually on Thanksgiving morning, the Turkey Trot allows participants to run or walk a 5K and an 8-mile race, sponsored by the Dallas Mavericks, starting in Downtown Dallas.
There will be two in-person start times, at 8:30 am and 9:00 am, to allow people to choose the time that works best for them. Registration is open up until the evening before Thanksgiving. Junior Trot 1K is now back, sponsored by Children’s Health.
Donations and proceeds from the Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot benefit the Y’s community health programs across the metroplex that help families dealing with diabetes, nutritional challenges and weight loss struggles.
