Turkey Trot

This year, we’re going virtual!  Run the Franklin Park Turkey Trot at your own pace and on your own schedule from Oct 31 through Nov 30, and share on social media using #FPTurkeytrot (tag us @FranklinParkBos on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook).  We hope this unconventional option is a fun alternative for your family while supporting the Franklin Park Coalition.  Our work feels more vital than ever to ensure our park is a welcoming respite during this difficult time.

Yes, there are still prizes!

All participants who post their Trot on social media are entered in our raffle, and we will also have a smaller raffle among participants in costume, and among those who share a creative route.  We are still gathering prizes but these are options so far:

One-year family memberships to some of Boston’s best natural and cultural attractions:

  • Franklin Park Zoo
  • Museum of Fine Arts
  • Trustees of Reservations
  • Mass Audubon
  • Museum of Science
  • National Center of Afro American Artists

How does this work?

To sign up, please donate at least $10 per adult (registration form below).  Then come to the park and post your run, with a photo or video, using #FPTurkeytrot and tag us @FranklinParkBos (Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook). Please provide your social media handles in the comment field, so that we can watch for your post.

All entrants who post are entered in the general raffle. To enter the costume raffle, just show off your costume in your post.  And how about the creative route raffle?  Share a full screenshot with us from your GPS program.



Can you beat our race director’s attempt?
