Tallahassee Turkey Trot

15K/10K/5K/1M, Thanksgiving Day

2016 was the 41th running of this race and had the largest number of finishers, with more than 6000 crossing a finish line. It is GWTC’s largest race and has become an essential family meeting place for area runners and walkers on Thanksgiving Day. It has been around since 1976, and race directors David and Mary Jean Yon do their best to give you a caring way to burn calories before Thanksgiving dinner.

2009 saw the introduction of the Turkey Trot Heroes – runners who gave a little extra to the great causes the race supports – and that program took off in 2010 to help the race set fund raising records for the Boys and Girls Clubs, The Shelter and the Refuge House.
