Races & Runs

YMCA Turkey Trot presented by UPMC Health Plan

Get ready to Turkey Trot LIVE this Thanksgiving day! The YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh Turkey Trot presented by UPMC Health Plan will be back to a live start line on Thursday, November 25!

Starting August 5, you'll be able to sign up to run 5 miles or the 5K (or both, if you're participating in the Double Gobble)! There will also be a 1-mile Family Fun Run, perfect for runners of all ages. All runners will receive a race shirt and the option to add on a Turkey Trot medal!

Can't make it to the live start line? No problem! We're still offering virtual options for all of the events, so make sure you register to claim your spot!

The event benefits YMCA food pantry programs and the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Since March 2020, the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh has distributed approximately 80 tons of food in local neighborhoods as part of its work with the food bank and other local partners to fight food insecurity in our region.
