Webster Turkey Trot Hybrid Event – Celebrating 50 years!
A Local Thanksgiving Day Classic since 1972!
4.4 Mile Race / 2.5 Mile Fun Run (In-Person and Virtual Options)
This 50-year-old tradition of Webster, NY was started by Jim May, former English Teacher, in Webster. Jim May started this event as a practice run for his Cross Country Team, as a way for them to get a workout on Thanksgiving Day. As the years progressed, the event grew to what it is today. Jim May’s former Cross Country Runner, Dave Boutillier, took over the reins of the race in the late 90′s under his Race Directing Company, YellowJacket Racing. Each year this race reminds Dave and many other former Webster residents of his youth and running the event annually.
