The JCC Turkey Trot 5K Returns to Boca Raton on Thanksgiving Day

If you’re looking for a fun race to support on Thanksgiving Day in Boca Raton, then the 13th Annual Levis JCC Turkey Trot 5K is the perfect option for you. This local tradition allows you and your family and friends to walk, trot, or flock, depending on which race you choose. The event features a traditional in-person 5K race, as well as a youth one-mile fun run, and a virtual 5K at home for those who are still social distancing. All in-person participants can enjoy refreshments after the race is over.

The first 800 participants to register for the Turkey Trot 5K or one-mile run can receive a goodie bag, a collectible finisher medal, and a dry-fit tee shirt. All proceeds from the races benefit the Levis JCC programs and services, which are used by children and families in the Boca Raton community. For those 10 and under, the 5K costs $20 until November 14 and $25 from November 15 to 24, and for those 11 and older, the race costs $35 until November 14 and $40 from November 15 to November 24. The youth one-mile fun run costs about $12 until November 14 and $18 from November 15 until race day.
