Early bird admission for the YMCA Turkey Trot ends Friday

Early bird pricing for the 124th annual YMCA Buffalo Niagara Turkey Trot ends at 11:59 p.m. Friday.

Those interested in the 8K run/walk will pay $36 if they register before Saturday; after that, it will cost $41 until the event reaches its capacity of 14,000 participants, for safety reasons.

That often happens in the first or second week of November.

The race starts at 9 a.m. Nov. 28 outside the Delaware Avenue Family YMCA and ends at the Buffalo Convention Center.

Register online at ymcaturkeytrot.org. Paper registration forms can be downloaded online but can only be accepted through the end of Friday.

The entry fee includes a commemorative T-shirt and after-parties at the Convention Center and nearby Statler City.

Proceeds benefit the YMCA Buffalo Niagara Financial Assistance Program, which provides programs and services to those who cannot otherwise afford them. Last year’s Turkey Trot allowed the YMCA to provide $1.4 million in such assistance to more than 2,800 families.
