The Troy Turkey Trot is the nation’s 12th and world’s 64th oldest road race. Since its humble beginnings in 1916 when six runners entered, the Trot has grown to become one of America’s largest road races with more than 7,000 participants. This year will feature a return to in-person racing, as well as a convenient virtual option for those concerned about being around others or who plan to be away. Our race day gets underway with the Capital Region’s only Thanksgiving Day 10K at 8 a.m. It is followed by the one-mile Turkey Walk and Grade School Mile at 9:30 a.m.and our popular 5K run at 10 a.m. Join us in this proud annual tradition!
