About the race

The Turkey Trot is an annual chip-timed race on the island of Palm Beach. This fun, healthy and family-friendly event caters to 1,500 runners, walkers and trotters who wish to support the Town of Palm Beach United Way by helping provide Thanksgiving meals to individuals and families in need throughout Palm Beach County. The event features raffle drawings, children's activities, an awards ceremony and much more!

Proceeds from the race are donated to local nonprofit agencies to help provide meals for children and families on Thanksgiving. Last year, thanks to our participants and sponsors, we provided Thanksgiving meals to clients at 19 organizations.



The Town of Palm Beach United Way’s Turkey Trot is perhaps the most prominent Thanksgiving race in Palm Beach County. By joining as a sponsor, your brand will have the opportunity to be integrated into all race communications to past and current participants and Turkey Trot collateral (shirts, bibs, signage, etc.). Please join us! Together we are helping to provide meals to those who need them most. Click below for more information.

That means your race time clock will not begin until you cross the start line and will stop as you cross the finish line.
