Houston Turkey Trot: Get Involved

When you run the BakerRipley Houston Turkey Trot you help keep Houston a place of opportunity for everyone.

For nearly three decades, runners of all skill levels have made the Trot a Thanksgiving tradition, raising money and awareness to improve the lives of our neighbors by getting active in our very own communities.

To be exact, by participating you are supporting nearly 600,000 of your Houston neighbors. And even if running is not your thing, we have other options for you to get involved!
