Run The 2013 Troy Turkey Trot On November 28, 2013

Troy Turkey Trot Register to run in the annual Troy Turkey Trot, or wake up early Thanksgiving morning to cheer from the sidelines!

TROY NY — Since 1916, the Troy Turkey Trot has inspired runners, young and old, to get up and race each year on Thanksgiving morning. The race has grown into one of the largest road races in upstate New York with approximately 8,000 people expected participate. This year, the oldest race in the Capital Region continues in tradition with a few new changes in store.

All Turkey Trot events will start at Fourth and Fulton St. this year, which allows for much more room for runners to line up for the start of each race. There will be new start times for events (see below) and there will be no race day registration. Participants will be offered disposable timing strips to track runners' times.

A costume contest will be held this year with prizes awarded for "Best Thanksgiving Day Costume" and "Best Non-Thanksgiving Costume." Participants in all events will receive a dry-fit commemorative t-shirt and finisher's item. The race benefits the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York and CYO Center.

Participants can register in person at the Troy City Hall, 1776 Sixth Avenue or runners can also register online for the 2013 Troy Turkey Trot. Online registration will close Wednesday, November 25th at 11:59pm. There will be no day of race registration. Volunteers can also register online.
