What is a Turkey Trot?

A Turkey Trot is a fun run or footrace, that is held on or around Thanksgiving Day. Americans run in Turkey Trots to burn off calories before indulging in Thanksgiving feasts. In many communities throughout the United States, this has become a family and community tradition.

The Town of Taos and Taos Sports Alliance are excited to host the Second Annual Turkey Trot 5k Road Race and Fun Run/Walk. Are you an experienced runner or a fun run enthusiasts? This event welcomes you and your entire family. What a great way to jump start the Holiday seasons in beautiful Taos, New Mexico.

The Taos Turkey Trot will benefit “Get Fit Taos Kids”, a program that focuses on nutrition, exercise and healthy weight in our community’s children.
