The YMCA Turkey Trot is a Thanksgiving Day tradition that attracts runners of all ages and abilities to Fredericksburg, VA each year. Run or walk the 5k course through scenic downtown Fredericksburg or participate virtually on a course of your choosing. Kids can get in on the fun by joining a parent in the 5k or running the 1 mile race.
Proceeds raised support Rappahannock Area YMCA programs that empower youth, improve community health, and ensure affordable access for all.
