A Thanksgiving Tradition

The Fort Worth YMCA Turkey Trot started on Thanksgiving morning in 1981 with just a 5K race.

Over the past 37 years, the Turkey Trot has grown from 200 runners to over 10,000 in our 5K, 10K and Gobbler Trot races. It has become a Fort Worth tradition for generations of families and our community.
