The YMCA, Always Here For Our Community

Festival Foods Turkey Trot


NOVERMBER 23, 2017


The Festival Foods Turkey Trot will take place on Thanksgiving Day, November 23, 2017 beginning at 8:00 am.


The Turkey Trot offers two events – a five mile run and a two mile walk – to accommodate participants of all ages and abilities. Attendees enjoy the upbeat music, high quality long-sleeved t-shirts and free Festival Foods pumpkin pies at the finish line that they can take home and enjoy with their family. The Dog Jog, a separate group just for dogs and their humans, will start at the back of the 2 mile event.


The Turkey Trot benefits the Boys & Girls Club and YMCA in communities Festival serves. Both of those organizations provide volunteers in return for monetary proceeds. In the past five years, the Turkey Trot has donated more than $681,000!


When: Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Where: Onalaska Omni Center, 255 Riders Club Rd, Onalaska, WI, 54650 

To help make this event a success we currently need volunteers for all areas, especially Course Marshals to help provide a safe route for the runners and walkers. 

100% of event proceeds directly support the Y's Annual Campaign, which benefits the community by providing opportunities for youth and adults to achieve so much more.
