36th Annual Turkey Trot YMCA of El Paso

Our 36th Annual Turkey Trot will be November 22 at 7:30 am. The Turkey Trot route will be on the FirstLight Federal Credit Union Sun Bowl Parade. We will have a 5K Competitive Run, 3K Fun Walk, a 1 Mile Kids Run and new this year the 5K LiveSTRONG Cancer Survivor run.

Howard Sullens, Executive Director of Bowling Family YMCA, states “This is a great family event. Each year, we register families of 2 to 15 members for this great event. This is a family tradition to begin the holidays with the Turkey Trot.” We have had people from Hawaii to New Jersey run this race last year. Of course, El Pasoans fill out this race. Last year, we had 1,103 run/walk this event and we are planning on over 1,200 this year.

Turkey Trot is powered by Tropicana Homes again this year. Hoy Fox Automotive is sponsoring our timing this year. Our other sponsors are Quality Fruits and Vegetables, Coke, Sun Bowl and the City of El Paso.
