ttlogosmallOne of Brooklyn’s most popular races, this spectacular 5-miler is the perfect way to kick off your holiday season! The early start time guarantees you’ll make it home for turkey.

Walkers are welcome, but due to liability reasons we cannot allow strollers or pets.

New for 2017: We will be offering Charity Bibs as part of the PPTC Grants Program for the first time ever, see details below!

If you are a PPTC member and would like to volunteer for the race, please look for the info in our Google Group.

Again this year we will offer early-bird pricing:

  • $25 early-turkey pricing September 4 through September 18
  • $35 September 19 – October 16
  • $40 October 17 until the race sells out or online registration closes

New for 2017: Charity Bibs We anticipate this race selling outCommunity Help in Park Slope in mid-October, but for the first time ever we will be also offering 100 additional entries to the race at $100 each. These extra 100 bibs will go on sale November 12th, 2017, and every penny received from the sale of these bibs will go to CHiPS, a wonderful local community organization which provides food and shelter to those in need.


TurkeyTrot2016You’ll start on Center Drive near East Drive. When you finish near the Lakeside Center, one of our local heroes will place a medal around your neck.

If you’re fast enough to place in the top three, you’ll also receive one of our famous holiday pies!

You can leave a bag, but please pack light owing to security precautions. PPTC is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

We strongly recommend you use mass transit. The Q train and the B12, B16, B41, and B43 buses work well. (Google Maps can give you precise directions.)

Like last year, we will be selling old race swag after the PPTC Turkey Trot for $5/item. Please bring cash.
