Race in the 2020 Virtual Troy Turkey Trot During Thanksgiving Weekend

The Troy Turkey Trot started in 1916 with just six runners entered. Now, it's one of the largest and oldest turkey trots in the country. For 2020, the event is going virtual and will feature a 5K run, 10K run, one-mile Turkey Walk, and the Grade School Mile that you can complete on a course of your choosing.
