On Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 26, 2015 beginning at 7:00AM at Amalie Arena in downtown Tampa, The Goody Goody Turkey Trot will be the premier 5K Thanksgiving Day event in our community!
Starting from humble beginnings 10+ years ago, when a group of joggers met at the Downtown YMCA to run before starting their Thanksgiving Day festivities, this once small gathering has turned into a cherished Tampa tradition. In 2015, the Goody Goody Turkey Gobble transcends generations of participants as they gather to celebrate the holiday with families, friends and co-workers while furthering the cause of the Tampa YMCA to strengthen the foundations of community through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
Participants will enjoy a post race breakfast from Goody Goody Restaurant! Prizes will be awarded to 1st place overall Male/Female and 1st place overall Male/Female youth (ages 12 and under). The next 50 men and 50 women finishers, regardless of age, will receive a commemorative gift.
100% of the proceeds raised from the 5K will support the Tampa YMCA’s LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA cancer wellness programs. The free 12-week program offers people affected by cancer a safe, supportive environment to participate in physical and social activities focused on strengthening the whole person.
There are NO REFUNDS! There is NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION!
