November 26

Turkey Trot


The turkey trot, the longest continuously run foot race in North America and the oldest in the United States (it beats the Boston Marathon by mere months), begins at 9 a.m. Fourteen thousand local and visiting runners—teams, individual competitors, masters, and amateurs, many dressed in costumes from turkeys to Santa Claus to the Blues Brothers—descend on Buffalo to make the 8K (about four-point-eight miles) trek down Delaware Avenue. Many more attend the after party or cheer from the sidelines. Visit the website for complete details.





Except where noted, all events take place in Buffalo (area code 716). ​Got an event of your own to publicize? Send details to: elicata@buffalospree.com. Don’t see your event here? Add it to our reader submitted Community Calendar by clicking here
