YMCA’S 50th annual Turkey Trot goes virtual

For years, Louisville runners have worked up their Thanksgiving Day appetite by participating in the YMCA annual Turkey Trot Fun Run/Walk.

This year, the event celebrates its 50th year of Thanksgiving Day fun, but due to COVID-19, the race will be conducted virtually. Between November 21 and November 26, participants will be able to complete the race from anywhere.

Each participant will receive as commemorative T-shirt and finisher’s medal. Participants must register by November 18 to be guaranteed a shirt during packet pick-up. Those registering after that date will be notified once the final shirt order has been received.
