A Turkey Trot is a fun run, or footrace, that takes place every year for people who want to burn calories before Thanksgiving. According to USA Track and Field, sanctioned turkey trot races range in distance from 3.1 (5K) to 26.2 miles. Most, however, are run from 3.1 to 8 miles. There are hundreds of Turkey Trot races held all over the United States. The races usually take place on or a day before Thanksgiving. However, some are held up to a week before the holiday to raise money for local charities who provide Thanksgiving meals for needy families.
Participants often wear Thanksgiving themed costumes while running the race, and many races distribute frozen turkeys to everyone. Other prizes include cash, "Turkey T-shirts," and actual live turkeys. The Buffalo Turkey Trot claims to be both the oldest Turkey Trot and footrace in America. It has been put on by the YMCA each year since 1896. The YMCA also puts on the Dallas Turkey Trot, which is believed to be the most popular.Learn more about Art & Literature
