2013 Turkey Trot Race Results

The YMCA of El Paso Turkey Trot is the largest Thanksgiving Day event of its kind in the region. In 2013, the Trot had over 1,100 participants participating in our event.  Starting from humble beginnings 37 years ago, it has grown into the undisputed "Way to Begin Thanksgiving Day" for hundreds of local families as well as those who travel to share in our great event. 

The Trot tradition has now extended through generations of participants who celebrate the holiday with grandparents, relatives, friends and their youngest who we look to see with their own families in the years ahead.  The YMCA of El Paso supports strong kids, strong families and strong communities – all of which are represented at the Trot.  Participants are also helping to support important YMCA programs.  We look forward to seeing you feel free to bring a big group) to this year’s YMCA of El Paso Turkey Trot.

The Turkey Trot is a YMCA tradition that draws people from all over the country – from Hawaii to Massachusetts, from Michigan to Mexico.  Mark your calendar now and come join the fun!!!



To prepare for the upcoming 37th Annual Turkey Trot, the YMCA is having a Couch to 5K (C25K) training program at the Westside Family YMCA.  The C25K will help you get into shape for the upcoming race with nine weekly meetings beginning October 1st and running through November 26th.
