On November 23rd, 2017, the Briargate Family YMCA is hosting our 20th annual Turkey Trot 5k and Kids’ Fun Run event in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Turkey Trot 5k and Kids’ Fun Run is the eagerly anticipated Holiday event of the season and is a fundraiser for the YMCA. This fundraiser enables us to provide scholarships to local families in need, which, in turn, allows them access to the YMCA and its many programs. 

TEAMS: You will be prompted during the registration process to sign up for a 5K team - you must have 4 or more participants to get the discount ($3 off per person)

SHIRTS: TBD

An option if you aren't in town, too busy, worried about the weather, or too sleepy to get up that early. You choose when, how, and where. Post pictures of you doing your run/walk on our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/YMCARACES) and tell us how it went! OR we'll run in your honor! Either way, you get a shirt and a warm heart knowing that every penny goes back to the local community to help families in need!
