The 2014 PPTC Turkey Trot sponsored by JackRabbit Sports

November 27, 2014 at 9:00 a.m.

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.

REGISTER HERE. The price goes up on October 13, so don't delay!

They're Off at TTIf 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. There is NO race-day registration.

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, 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.
