The 14th annual Running of the Turkeys through downtown York will take place Thanksgiving morning on November 23 with a start time of 8am. First Presbyterian and Trinity United Methodist churches will host the event. 

Running of the Turkeys was founded in 2010 by local runners and church members wanting to bring a family-friendly Thanksgiving run to York’s historic downtown and to give runners an opportunity to give back to their community.

Runners can drop off non perishable items to donate to PATH during packet pick up on Wednesday, November 22 or on the morning of the race. 

 People Attempting to Help, or PATH, will receive the proceeds and donations along with the Grace and Mercy Soup Kitchen of the Wesley United Methodist Church and YSD1 Education Foundation. With partner grocery stores buying less food and therefore donating less, PATH’s inventory is at an all time low, while its client base continues to grow. Started in 1982 by the Western York County Christian Ministers Association, PATH has been serving the citizens of York and its outlying environs for 25 years. The not for profit organization includes a food pantry and associated thrift store and provides emergency aid for utilities and other needs for those in crisis.
For more information on PATH, visit pathministriesofyorksc.org.

Shirts are only guaranteed if registered by NOVEMBER 1. Inventory and shipping are pushing deadlines earlier than normal.
