Webster Turkey Trot

A Local Thanksgiving Day Classic

4.4 Mile Race / 2.5 Mile Fun Run

Join us to celebrate the 46th running of the Webster Turkey Trot!!

Join the Webster Turkey Trot Facebook Group Page here for updates and Trotty conversation.

This 46 year old tradition of Webster, NY was started by Jim May, former English Teacher, in Webster. Jim May started this event as a practice run for his Cross Country Team, as a way for them to get a workout on Thanksgiving Day. As the years progressed, the event grew to what it is today. Jim May’s former Cross Country Runner, Dave Boutillier, took over the reigns of the race in the late 90′s under his Race Directing Company, YellowJacket Racing. Each year this race reminds Dave and many other former Webster residents of his youth and running the event annually.

This year's event will be capped at 4,572 participants!

Strollers, Dogs, & Headphones are NOT permitted on course!!
