Troy Turkey Trot

Registration is open! The Troy Turkey Trot 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. 2015 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!

We are delighted to once again host the Capital Region’s premier Turkey Trot. Whether you live in Troy, Albany, Schenectady or beyond, we invite you to come to Troy with your family and friends to experience our event, soak up our city’s rich history, and kick off your holiday festivities.
