A THANKSGIVING TRADITION
The Fort Worth YMCA Turkey Trot started on Thanksgiving morning in 1981, with just a 5K race. Over the years, the Turkey Trot has grown from 200 runners to nearly 10,000 in our 5K, 10K and 1K Gobbler Trot races, and has become a Fort Worth tradition for generations of families and our community.
Proceeds from the Fort Worth Turkey Trot support the Y's diverse programming including childcare, water safety lessons, summer camp, youth sports, health programs, senior engagement, food insecurity and more. When you trot with us, you're helping the Y continue to provide opportunities and access for all.
