Troy Turkey Trot

The Troy Turkey Trot is a premier road race featuring 5k and 10k distances, among other events. Since its humble beginnings 101 years ago, when six runners entered, the Troy Turkey Trot has grown into one of the largest and oldest turkey trots in the United States. 2017 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!

Message from Mayor Madden
mayor_madden_tttOn behalf of the City of Troy, I am delighted to welcome you to the 70th running of the Troy Turkey Trot. Our event, which was founded in 1916 as a remembrance run for veterans and is the nation’s 12th oldest road race, serves as a fantastic way to engage the entire community in celebrating fitness, family and tradition. I am confident your experience at the Troy Turkey Trot will continue to draw you back to the Collar City for many years to come.
