YMCA Turkey Trot registration now open

Registration for the 123rd annual YMCA Turkey Trot has opened, according to YMCA Buffalo Niagara. Runners may register at YMCABN.org until race capacity is reached.

Presented by ADPRO Sports, the Turkey Trot is a Thanksgiving Day tradition, which, according to the YMCA, sells out every year, so race organizers recommend that interested participants register early.

The oldest consecutively run footrace in North America, the Turkey Trot is an 8K race that attracts 14,000 runners and walkers annually.

According to the YMCA, proceeds raised from the event benefit children and families who would otherwise be unable to afford YMCA programs and services.

In 2017, Turkey Trot participants helped YMCA Buffalo Niagara provide more than $1.2 million in financial assistance to families in need throughout Western New York.

For more information on this year’s race, visit www.YMCA BN.org or contact the Turkey Trot call line at 565-6000.
