Carlisle Family YMCA Virtual Turkey Trot

Carlisle Family YMCA
The Carlisle Family YMCA Turkey Trot presented by Penn State Health is going VIRTUAL this year!

We know everyone loves our event because of the family friendly atmosphere, the community camaraderie and getting some exercise in on Thanksgiving morning. You can still do all of that, just VIRTUALLY this year. With the event going virtual you can literally run or walk anywhere in the world from November 22-30. We are offering three distances (1 mile, 5K and 10K) and registration is only $10!


In lieu of age group and overall best time awards, we are going to have plenty of random prize drawings, fun contests and lots of social media interaction. Be sure to use our hashtag – #carlisleturkeytrot – on all photos and videos you post on social media!

Challenge your family, your friends or your co-workers from all around the world this year and have virtual bragging rights. And yes, the GOLDEN FORKS are back for the TUCKEY TEAM CHALLENGE! We hope you will support the great work the Carlisle Family YMCA does in our community and help make this the best Virtual Turkey Trot ever!
