More than $12,000 Raised for Northeast Regional Food Bank, Troy Boys and Girls Club, and Lansingburgh Boys and Girls Club.
Welcome to the Troy Turkey Trot!
2013 Registration is coming soon! The Troy Turkey Trot (in Troy, NY) is a premier road race featuring 5k and 10k distances, among other events. Since its humble beginnings in 1916, when six runners entered, the Troy Turkey Trot has grown into one of the largest and oldest turkey trots in the United States. 2012 will feature four events: the competitive 5k and 10k runs, the one mile Turkey Walk and the Grade School Mile. Join us in this proud annual tradition!
