Join NBC 5 and the Westside YMCA Thanksgiving morning on November 23 at the 36th annual Fort Worth YMCA Turkey Trot.
The Turkey Trot will include a 5K, 10K and a 1K fun run called the Gobbler. The Fort Worth YMCA Turkey Trot has become a Thanksgiving Day tradition as well as the Y’s largest event, benefiting the scholarship/youth program of the Westside YMCA.
All three races begin on Camp Bowie at the Westridge Intersection. With over 13,000 paying participants and thousands of cheering supporters, it is a sight to behold. There’s a party atmosphere with a live band, aerobic warm up, food court and balloons. There is parking available in several vacant lots along Camp Bowie and limited parking around the race area. All walkers, baby strollers, and dog walkers are asked to start at the back of the pack to let competitive runners compete in the chip timed corral.
For years, the YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth has served Fort Worth and the surrounding area with a vision to improve the lives of its citizens, especially its youth. Today their cause is strengthening communities, by nurturing youth development, encouraging healthy living and supporting social responsibility.
