29th Annual

Greensburg Turkey Trot

November 16-26, 2020

What's the Turkey Trot?

The Turkey Trot is a 5K run/walk held every year in Greensburg, PA on Thanksgiving Day. This event was created by five friends who ran every day at lunch.  They created a non-profit called Westmoreland Community Sharing to develop this race and 29 years later, their event is still going strong! When you participate in the trot, you are supporting multiple non-profits in your community. 

Everyone is encouraged to participate! Serious and casual runners, competitive and casual walkers, and family and friends of ALL AGES.

Race Start Times

Runners: Anytime, anywhere from   November 16 to November 26, 2020

Walkers: Anytime, anywhere from  November 16 to November 26, 2020
