BUFFALO, NY (Submitted) – Early bird pricing for the 123rd Annual YMCA Buffalo Niagara Turkey Trot is set to expire Friday, October 12. Starting Saturday, October 13 the registration fee increases to $41 per entry until the race sells out.
For the safety of all involved, race capacity is set at 14,000. Online registration is available at YMCATurkeyTrot.org. Paper registration forms can also be downloaded online but will only be accepted through October 12. The entry fee includes all processing fees and a commemorative t-shirt.
The YMCA Turkey Trot begins at 9:00 am at the Delaware Family YMCA (2564 Delaware Ave.) and ends at Franklin and Court Streets near the Buffalo Convention Center. At the conclusion of the event, participants are invited to the post-race celebration and awards presentation at the Convention Center. A family-friendly, non-alcoholic post-race area is also available in Statler City located across the street from the Convention Center.
Proceeds from the YMCA Turkey Trot go directly to the YMCA’s financial assistance program, which helps make YMCA programs and services accessible to individuals and families who would otherwise be unable to afford them. In 2017, the event helped the YMCA provide $1.2 million in financial assistance to more than 2,800 families across Western New York.
