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.

At least half of the proceeds from this year’s Turkey Trot will again benefit the PPTC Grants Program, which provides assistance to organizations that advance Prospect Park Track Club’s mission of promoting running in Brooklyn.


Registration is sold out. Please note that we do not keep a waiting list, we do not allow bib transfers, and we do not offer refunds.

If you’d like to run another event Thanksgiving week, please have a look at the race calendar maintained by our timing partner, NYCRUNS.

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


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.


Others may pick up your bib for you.
