The Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot is a tradition more than 55 years in the making – and one of the largest multi-event runs in the country. Every year on Thanksgiving morning, the popular event kicks off at 9 a.m. in front of Dallas City Hall. The holiday tradition includes both certified 5K and 8-mile races in a festive, family-friendly atmosphere. (If you choose to walk some or most of the course, no worries; you’ll have plenty of company.)

Not only is DART the best way to get there, we can save you money, too. Get $5 off your registration fee by using the promotional code TROTDART. Race day registration begins at 7 a.m. at Dallas City Hall Plaza, and the main races start at 9 a.m.

City Hall is about a 10-minute walk from Union Station on the Red and Blue lines (the Trinity Railway Express does not operate on Thanksgiving Day). It’s about the same distance from Akard Station on all four DART Rail lines.

The races end at the same place they start. Proceeds from the Turkey Trot support the YMCA. For more information on this year’s Turkey Trot, visit https://www.ymcadallas.org/turkeytrot
