Turkey Trots have been a part of American Thanksgiving Day tradition dating back to 1896 with the founding of the Buffalo New York Thanksgiving Day Race. Over the years, many communities and organizations have joined in this wonderful holiday ritual, including Dallas beginning in 1968 and Fort Worth in 1982.

Before the parades, before the kick-off, and before the feasting commences, come kick-off a great Thanksgiving Day with a fun race, run, jog, walk, stroll, roll, or even crawl! You may even burn off a few calories!

Net proceeds from the 11th Annual Arlington Turkey TrotTM will go to support the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County! The mission of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County is simple: “To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.” We are thrilled to partner with this incredible and impactful organization.
