Inaugural Long Island City YMCA Turkey Trot Run/Walk for Kids

Before diving into the mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, get moving, burn calories and have some good family fun at the first-ever Turkey Trot/Kids Fun Run and Walk at the YMCA in Long Island City.

Kids of all ages are invited to participate in races including the 100 Meter (4 years and under); the 400 meter (5-8 years); and the 1000 meter (9-12 years).

Each participating child will receive a medal, commemorative t-shirt, photo with the mascot turkey, a goodie bag, and refreshments to stay hydrated.  Trophies will be given out  to the top 3 boy and girl finishers in each race.

Families will also be able to participate in raffles for great prizes including a free month’s membership to the LIC YMCA, a free 1 hour personal training, a free swim lesson, and more!

Register before November 24 at $8 per child or $15 per family.  If you register on race-day the cost is $10 per child or $20 per family.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the YMCA’s Strong Kids Campaign to help fight childhood obesity. To learn more visit LIC Turkey Trot.
The LIC YMCA is located at 32-23 Queens Blvd.
