Fremont Family YMCA Plans Another Annual Turkey Trot

FREMONT – Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and while many of us are planning the family’s menu and picking out pies, you might also be thinking about fun family activities to keep the kids (or visiting relatives) entertained.

It’s not too late to register for the annual YMCA Turkey Trot! Held on Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, November 22nd at 8:30, this annual tradition starts at the Fremont Family YMCA. Three courses are available, depending on how much you want to run: 5 miles, 2 miles, or a one mile fun walk that’s perfect for the little ones in the family.

In addition to awards, the top male and female in the 5 mile race will each win $100!  All registered participants are welcome to stick around after the race for post-race door prizes and refreshments in the Large Gym. Pre-race packet pick-up is available the day of the race beginning at 7:30 am, or at the Fremont Family YMCA on Wednesday, November 21st from 12:00 pm – 10:00 pm.

Plus, for one mile fun walkers – it’s FREE to participate! Turkey Trot t-shirts are available to walkers for a $15 charge if registered before November 21.

Registration deadlines:

  • November 6-11 – $25 (guaranteed a t-shirt on race day)
  • November 12-21 – $30 (not guaranteed a t-shirt on race day, but within a few days of the race)
