11th Annual ARLINGTON TURKEY TROT Postponed!

Thank you so much for your interest in the 11th Annual Arlington Turkey Trot. We love this great tradition of coming together as a community on Thanksgiving Day. We were looking forward to this year’s event, but, as we all know, every aspect of our lives continues to be affected by the Covid-19 Pandemic. The most recent surge in cases has caused us a great deal of thought, and out of an abundance of caution we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 11th Annual ARLINGTON TURKEY TROT until Thanksgiving Day of 2021.

Thank you again for continuing to support the Arlington Turkey Trot and its community efforts. Stay safe, stay healthy, and plan our coming together again on Thanksgiving Day of 2021!

One of the TOP 20 Turkey Trots in the Nation!

Arlington, Texas, nestled conveniently in the heart of the Metroplex, is the proud home to the American League Texas Rangers and the impressive Globe Life Field in Arlington, the Dallas Cowboys and the fabulous AT&T Stadium, and the Original Six Flags Over Texas.

In 2010, Arlington proudly took its place among American cities, large and small, by establishing its own Thanksgiving Day tradition. Now, it’s time for the 2020 11th Annual Arlington Turkey Trot TM. FREE Parking will again be at the ARLINGTON CONVENTION CENTER and Texas Ranger’s Lots J, M, & N. Registration and the Start & Finish site are located on Road to Six Flags along the entire west side of the Globe Life Park!

Check out the start of the 2018 9th Annual ARLINGTON TURKEY TROT!

Turkey Trots have been a part of American Thanksgiving Day tradition dating back to 1896 with the founding of the Buffalo New York Thanksgiving Day Race. Over the years, many communities and organizations have joined in this wonderful holiday ritual, including Dallas beginning in 1968 and Fort Worth in 1982.

Before the parades, before the kick-off, and before the feasting commences, come kick-off a great Thanksgiving Day with a fun race, run, jog, walk, stroll, roll, or even crawl! You may even burn off a few calories!

Net proceeds from the 11th Annual Arlington Turkey TrotTM will go to support the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County!
