The 42nd annual Moritz YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth Turkey Trot will take place Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, Nov. 23, at The Shops at Clearfork, 5188 Monahans Ave., Fort Worth.
In addition to the standard 1k Hapi Water Gobbler Trot and the 5k and 8k events, this year’s Trot will include a new 13k opportunity. Participants who finish the 8k course can then join in on the 5k run and earn medals for all three events. All courses are open to walkers as well as runners; after runners have started each event, walkers are welcomed to join.
Race organizers expect more than 10,000 runners, walkers, strollers and pets to join this year’s festivities.
Turkey Trot kicks off at 8 a.m., with the 1k Gobbler Trot. The 8k race starts at 8:15 a.m., with the 5k run beginning at 8:30 a.m.
All proceeds from Turkey Trot registration fees support the YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth, with programs designed to benefit the overall well-being of individuals residing in Tarrant, Johnson and Hood counties.
