The Turkey Trot 5 Mile – Nov 28, 2019

The 124th Annual YMCA Turkey Trot on November 28, 2019 is now open. 

An annual event that is a Thanksgiving tradition, the YMCA Turkey Trot helps support kids and families across Western New York. Proceeds from the Turkey Trot help make YMCA programs and services accessible to people in our community who would otherwise not be able to afford the full costs.

Since 1896 runners have competed in the cross country race that has become today’s Turkey Trot. The race attracts serious runners, amateurs, and team competitors alike. The Turkey Trot is an 8k footrace which begins on Delaware Avenue, and continues into downtown Buffalo. Please join us in this amazing tradition, and see the links below for more information on the run and its impact.

Join Our Walking or Running Group


Join us Monday (walking) or Thursday (running) nights year-round for an evening of run, friendship and post-run social fun. All ability levels are welcome, and there is no charge. We vary the distances, usually 3 and 5 mile routes from the store for running and shorter for walking, and although the difficulty may vary, it is always a good time. We try to arrange shoe trials with brands like Saucony, Mizuno and Brooks throughout the summer running season. Ask us about our trail runs. Come on out, we’d love to see you.

Runner’s Roost is Buffalo’s premier running store. As a run specialty store, we carry a broad range of neutral and stability shoes from most of the popular brands in various price points. If we don’t have what you are looking for, we’ll order it for you.
