YMCA Turkey Trot; Traditional Start to Thanksgiving

The 46th annual Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot, the largest in the country, with an estimated 40,000 participants, will take place November 28, in Dallas, starting at City Hall and winding through downtown. Participants have the option of being timed on either the 5K or 8-mile run and both events are USA Track and Field certified.

Race day registration begins at 7 a.m., followed by the wheelchair race at 8:59 a.m., timed runners at 9 a.m. and then all remaining runners. A fenced and controlled timed runner corral will close at 8:40 a.m. to help encourage proper loading and an organized start. Walkers and those with strollers will start at the back of the runner pack. Paramedics and police officers are stationed throughout the course, as are water stops and restrooms.

Other activities include clowns, pony rides, bounce houses, live musical entertainment, refreshments and more. A Trot Tot event with a special Trot shirt and number is available for children 6 and younger.

There is an additional $5 charge for the disposable timing tag. Downtown parking is available, but participants are encouraged to utilize DART.
