5K Run/Walk

Welcome to the Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot 5K, an annual Thanksgiving tradition in the heart of Dallas, Texas. This event has been going strong for over 50 years, and we are thrilled to invite you to participate. Whether you're a seasoned runner, a first-timer, or just looking for a fun family walk to start the day, the Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot 5K is perfect for you. The certified 5K course begins at City Hall on Young Street, heads into Deep Ellum, travels through the heart of downtown on Main St, then ends on Young Street in front of Pioneer Plaza and the Dallas Police Memorial. 

The Turkey Trot 5K is a family-friendly event that is perfect for all ages and fitness levels. Whether you're an experienced runner or just starting out, this race is an excellent opportunity to challenge yourself and have fun while doing it.

The race takes place on Thanksgiving morning, making it the perfect way to kick off your holiday festivities. You'll get to enjoy the crisp fall weather and the beautiful scenery of Dallas as you run through the city streets.

In addition to being a fun event, the Turkey Trot 5K also supports a great cause. Proceeds from the race go towards supporting the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas and its mission to strengthen communities through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

We encourage all participants to come dressed in their best turkey-themed attire! There will also be post-race festivities, including food, music, and activities for the whole family to enjoy.

So, what are you waiting for? Sign up for the Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot 5K today and join us for a morning of fun, fitness, and giving back to the community. We can't wait to see you at the starting line!
