Description

10th Running of the Franklin Park Turkey Trot

TThe Franklin Park Coalition’s now-famous Turkey Trot started in 2013. After another record-breaking year, with more than 1,400 runners participating in 2019, we went virtual in 2020.  But the Turkey Trot was back in full swing in 2021 with a record number of runners!  Come join your friends and neighbors this year. With runners and walkers coming primarily from the neighborhoods that border the park, including Roxbury, Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, and Mattapan, the Turkey Trot is the largest Thanksgiving Day race in the City of Boston. We look forward to welcoming back the many families who have let us know this is their Thanksgiving tradition.

Early Number pick up and in-person registration
Once again we plan to offer early number pick up and registration on Sunday (Nov 20th) and Wednesday (Nov 23rd) before the race. Please note that race day registration may be limited or we may sell out (as we did in 2021!).  And, due to time constraints and the large number of runners expected, we highly encourage runners to make use of one of the early pick up options.
