8-Mile Run 

From its humble beginnings at White Rock Lake to the certified course in Downtown Dallas, the Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot has always featured an 8-mile race. Our current course begins on Young Street, heads into Deep Ellum, through the heart of downtown on Main St, past Reunion Tower, and over the viaduct bridge into Oak Cliff before returning to City Hall Plaza for the finish line. 8-Mile Trotters are guaranteed a one-of-a-kind scenic and historical tour of Dallas.

The Turkey Trot 8-Mile is a challenging and exciting event that is perfect for seasoned runners looking to test their endurance. Whether you're training for a marathon or just looking for a new fitness challenge, this race is a great opportunity to push yourself to the next level.

The race takes place on Thanksgiving morning, providing a perfect start to your holiday celebrations. You'll enjoy the crisp autumn weather and the beautiful scenery of Dallas as you run through the city streets.

So, are you up for the challenge? Sign up for the Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot 8-mile race today and join us for a morning of fitness, fun, and giving back to the community. We can't wait to see you at the starting line!
