Carlisle Family YMCA Turkey Trot Race Description

If you are looking for a great community event on Thanksgiving morning then the Carlisle Family YMCA Turkey Trot presented by Geisinger Holy Spirit (formerly CenturyLink Turkey Trot) at the Carlisle Family YMCA is the event for you! We are excited to announce that this is our 18th Annual Race, and will be the best one yet. Our race course will once again be USA Track & Field Certified. This means that our course is accurately measured, and can be used to break national open road racing records. We hope you will come and see why the Carlisle Family YMCA Turkey Trot presented by Geisinger Holy Spirit is the premier Thanksgiving Day race in SouthCentral PA. Did I also mention the AWESOME swag and awards that are always a big hit? Come have a great time and enjoy our 5K run / walk through the neighborhoods of Carlisle.

Turkey Jay is ready, are you?
