The Franklin Park Turkey Trot is a Boston family tradition, and we’re so happy to see the familiar faces that return year after year to support the park, especially in 2021 (with appropriate safety protocals in place). W

ith runners and walkers coming primarily from the neighborhoods that border the park, including Roxbury, Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, and Mattapan, the Turkey Trot is the largest Thanksgiving Day race in the City of Boston.

The scenic 3.1 mile (5k) route includes the park’s most beautiful and historic views and includes great prizes for age-group finishers and best costumes.

Whether you’re a veteran runner or signing up for your first 5k, you can be sure you’ll receive a hearty welcome at Franklin Park on Thanksgiving morning!

• All ages and paces welcome
• Strollers and race-ready leashed dogs are welcome
• Great prizes for fast finishers and costumes
• Event is chip timed

Runner registrations support the Franklin Park Coalition’s programs and events including; conservation & stewardship, arts & health, and advocacy that happen year-round.

The three pillars of the Franklin Park Coalition are: Work, Play and Engage!

Our signature fundraising and fitness event, the Annual Turkey Trot 5K brings each of these elements to life in the park.
