Everyone knows that Thanksgiving means its time for quality time with family and friends and a good, delicious meal. But in the morning, it’s also a time for Turkey Trots! This year, join the city of Burbank for the annual YMCA Turkey Trot that will feature a 5K and 10K double loop course for participants. There will even be a kiddie run for children 9 and under. So this year, bring the whole family along for the Burbank Community YMCA Turkey Trot on November 27 for families staying in Burbank CA hotels! Registration is now open.

The races will begin bright and early at 8am, and the track will take you through beautiful downtown Burbank. To register for the 5K or 10K is only $40 and $45, if you register the day of the race. If you would like to register your child for the Kiddie Run, it will be $15. Children will receive a prize and a t-shirt for completing the race. This year, there will be a $250 cash reward for the top female and male finishers of the 5K and 10K, so start training! Additional awards will be given to the top 3 male and female runners in each subsequent age group.  When you register, you will also receive a long-sleep shirt! Enjoy free photos at the finish line and a new and improved Kiddie Run, as well as a FREE Kids Fun Zone! Registration starts at 6:30am, the Expo opens at 7am, warm up and announcements start at 7:30am and the runners start at 8am. If you are doing the 5K fun walk, it will begin at 8:15am and the Kiddie Run starts at 9:30am.

You can register online at the official YMCA Burbank website. All proceeds for the race will go to the YMCA’s membership assistance program, which allows families and individuals to take part in the YMCA community where they may have otherwise not been able to afford it.
