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. This year brings four feature events: the competitive 5K run, the 10K run, the one-mile Turkey Walk, and the Grade School Mile.

Join the thousands of Capital Region participants in this proud tradition!
