Webster Turkey Trot

The longest standing Local Thanksgiving Day Classic

4.4 Mile Race / 2.5 Mile Fun Run

Join us to celebrate the 48th running of the Webster Turkey Trot!!

This 48 year old tradition since 1972 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 reins 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.
