It’s THE Quincy event everyone’s talking about! Thirty-eitht years ago, with only 25 runners, the very first Turkey Run was run. In 2015, over 2,200 people pounded the pavement through Quincy on Thanksgiving morning! A popular race, the Turkey Run is not just a great way to get your exercise in before the biggest meal of the year, it has become an event where families and friends can enjoy being together. Growing by hundreds of runners each year, it is THE race to be a part of in Quincy! Activities include a 1 mile or 5K Walk, 5K or 10K Run, or Swim. The Turkey Run is a fundraiser. The dollars raised from the race go directly to support YMCA youth development programs and to offer financial assistance to those who otherwise could not afford our programs and services.
