Prospect Park Track Club Turkey Trot

Start Time: 9:00AM
Lefrak Center
Prospect Park
Brooklyn, NY


One of Brooklyn’s most popular races, the Prospect Part Turkey Trot  is a festive 5-Miler and the perfect way to kick off your holiday season! The early start time guarantees you’ll make it home for turkey.

Walkers are welcome, but due to liability reasons we cannot allow strollers or pets.


Founded over 45 years ago, Prospect Park Track Club is Brooklyn’s largest and most active running club, with a membership that extends well beyond the neighborhoods surrounding Prospect Park. PPTC welcomes runners of all levels and puts on popular local races throughout the year.


You’ll start on Center Drive near East Drive. When you finish near the Lakeside Center, one of our local heroes will place a medal around your neck.


Bag check and toilets will be provided. The giveaway for this race will be a great winter hat and all finishers will receive a medal. Water will be available on the course, and bagels, spreads, fresh fruit, and hot chocolate will make up a great post race spread to greet you at the finish line. 


Pre-Race packet pickup is TBD
Race day packet pickup will be available at the Lefrak Center At Lakeside off the East Drive beginning at 7:00 AM and ending at 8:30 AM.

If you’d like to make a donation to CHiPS separate from the Turkey Trot Charity Bibs, you can do so at the registration checkout page.


If you’re fast enough to place in the top three, you’ll also receive one of our famous holiday pies!
