Troy Turkey Trot

The Troy Turkey Trot is a premier road race featuring 5k and 10k distances, among other events. Since its humble beginnings 100 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!
