19th Annual TURKEY TROT 5K
Thursday, November 26, 2015
The Turkey Trot Runner's Expo will feature local health & wellness-centric organizations and businesses, along with community partners and organizations.
The YMCA and the Catholic Harvest Food Pantry are once again conducting a food drive at the race. Like the Turkey Trot, the food drive continues to grow each year and we hope to continue that trend in 2015! Food pantry volunteers will be onsite to accept donations of non-perishable food items at race packet pick up and the morning of the race. The Pantry thanks you for your continued support! More information can be found at the Catholic Harvest Food Pantry's website, www.catholicharvest.org

Eighteen years ago, with only 200 runners, the very first Turkey Trot was run. In 2014, over 5,000 people pounded the pavement through York City on Thanksgiving morning! A popular race, the Turkey Trot is not just a great way to get your exercise in before the biggest meal of the year, it's also has become an event where families and friends can enjoy being together. Growing by hundreds of runners each year, it is THE race to be a part of in York County!
The Turkey Trot is a fundraiser. The dollars raised from the race go directly to support YMCA Health & Wellness programs and to offer financial assistance to those who otherwise could not afford our programs and services.
