Gather your flock and join us for this Thanksgiving tradition unlike any other! 

Supporting the Greater Chicago Food Depository, you will join fellow runners, joggers and walkers in some light hearted fun while ensuring no Chicagoan will go hungry this holiday season.

On November 25th, Lincoln Park welcomes “turkeys” of all ages and paces.  Centered around the Turkey Trot Tailgate, you will be able to enjoy pre and post-race activities like Corn Hole, Football Toss, and more while sipping on warm apple cider.  We can’t anticipate the weather, but we can guarantee the fun!

Support the Greater Chicago Food Depository

The Greater Chicago Food Depository, Chicago’s food bank is at the center of a network of more than 700 partner organizations and programs – food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile distributions and other partners – working to bring food, dignity and hope to our neighbors across Chicago and Cook County. In recent months responding to the coronavirus pandemic, the Food Depository’s network of food pantries and similar programs has served an average of almost 120 percent more people in need.

Each year, the Turkey Trot Chicago helps raise thousands of dollars and collects thousands of pounds of food for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Please lend a hand to help to feed our neighbors facing hunger!
