The 2013 PPTC Turkey Trot sponsored by JackRabbit Sports
November 28, 2013 at 9:00 a.m.
In partnership with the Bishop Ford Track Teams
Update, November 14th: the Turkey Trot is SOLD OUT. Thank you for making this such a successful event!
Results can be found here.
One 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.
If you're not among the first 2,500 to sign up, you're out of luck! Last year's Turkey Trot sold out more than a week in advance, so confirm your place early.
If there are still spots available on November 24, the price will be $40. There is NO race-day registration. The race is sold out.
You'll start on Center Drive near East Drive. When you finish near the Oriental Pavilion, one of our local heroes will place a medal around your neck. (You can see the course map here.) You'll be able to check your official time later in the day, courtesy of NYCRUNS.
If you're fast enough to place in the top three, or if you're the first Bishop Ford alum, you'll also receive one of our famous holiday pies!
We'll have packet pick-up the morning of the race; advance details will be announced in early November. You can leave a bag, but please pack light owing to security precautions. PPTC is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
To get to the start, the Q train and the B12, B16, B41, and B43 buses work well. (Google Maps can give you precise directions.) Use mass transit if possible, as the parking lot at the new Lakeside Center is still under construction.
