Presented by ADPRO Sports

In light of today’s pandemic, YMCA Buffalo Niagara realizes that the delivery of a traditional 14,000 in-person Turkey Trot will not be possible this year. Instead we plan to commemorate the YMCA Turkey Trot’s milestone 125th consecutive start with a live small-scale celebratory race in accordance with all COVID-19 Health and Safety regulations. A virtual option will also be offered to give all loyal past participants and friends the opportunity to run virtually (but together) on Thanksgiving morning.

Presented by ADPRO Sports, the YMCA Turkey Trot helps support kids and families across Western New York. Proceeds from the Turkey Trot help fund YMCA programs that empower youth, improve community health, and ensure access to all.

This year’s event will be different, but we still encourage you to join us for our milestone celebration of this amazing WNY holiday tradition!

About the YMCA Turkey Trot

Since 1896 runners have competed in the cross country race that has become today’s Turkey Trot. The race attracts serious runners, amateurs, and team competitors alike. The Turkey Trot is an 8k footrace which traditionally begins on Delaware Avenue, and continues into downtown Buffalo.
