Welcome to the 67th Troy Turkey Trot!

2014 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. 2014 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!
