COUNTDOWN TO THE TROT
Since 1981, new generations of families turn out to experience the fun, family-friendly atmosphere of the Fort Worth YMCA Turkey Trot. As of now, we are planning to offer an in-person and virtual race, but please continue to check back for additional updates regarding the 2021 Trot. When you register for the YMCA Turkey Trot, you’re signing up for more than just a race. You’re helping your neighbors in need during their most difficult times. 100% of the proceeds from the Fort Worth YMCA Turkey Trot go towards scholarships for families in our community.
PROCEEDS FROM THE YMCA TURKEY TROT
Proceeds from the Fort Worth YMCA 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. No matter where you Trot with us, you’re helping the Y continue to provide opportunities and access for all.

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.
