38th Annual Turkey Run/Walk
Thanksgiving Day, November 23 at 8:00am
Thirty-seven years ago, with only 25 runners, the very first Turkey Run was run. In 2016, a new record with over 2,600 people pounding the pavement through Quincy on Thanksgiving morning! A popular race, the Turkey Run is not just a great way to get your exercise in before the biggest meal of the year, it has become an event where families and friends can enjoy being together. Growing by hundreds of runners each year. Activities include a 1 mile Kids Fun Run, 5K Walk, 5K or 10K Run, or Swim. The Turkey Run is a fundraiser. The dollars raised from the race go directly to support YMCA youth development programs and to offer financial assistance to those who otherwise could not afford our programs and services.
