There's still time to sign-up to participate in the 7th Annual Arlington Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day.

Registration and the Start & Finish race site are on Road to Six Flags along the entire north side of the Globe Life Park. Free Parking will again be at the Arlington Convention Center and Texas Rangers Lot J.

Turkey Trots have been a part of American Thanksgiving Day tradition dating back to 1896 with the founding of the Buffalo New York Thanksgiving Day Race, now in its 119th year.

Over the years, many communities and organizations have joined in this wonderful holiday ritual, including Dallas beginning in 1968 and Fort Worth in 1982.

Before the parades, before the Cowboys game and before the feasting commences, residents and visitors are invited to kickoff a great Thanksgiving Day with a fun race, run, jog, walk, stroll, roll, or even crawl.

Net proceeds from the Arlington Turkey Trot will again go to support The Shoe Bank, a Metroplex based non-profit organization and recipient of many local, state, and national awards for more than 25 years.

The Shoe Bank is dedicated to recycling used shoes in its efforts to put comfortable, dependable footwear on men, women, and children and helps over 30,000 needy people annually. You can find The Shoe Bank drop boxes in athletic stores across the Metroplex.
