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. 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.

A Thanksgiving Tradition
The Fort Worth YMCA Turkey Trot started on Thanksgiving morning in 1981 with just a 5K race.
Since then, 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.
