Join us as we celebrate the 16th annual YMCA Turkey Dash on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 22).


Whether you’re a veteran runner or participating in your first race, we have an event for you, including a 10K, 5K, 1 Mile Kids Race and 1 Mile Walk/Run. We also have the best post-race party packed with food, giveaways, a photo booth and a kids fun zone.

If you love to dress up for races, we encourage you to do so! Enter solo or as a group in our 5th annual costume contest with prizes awarded to the “Best Thanksgiving Theme” and “Most Unique Costume”.

All proceeds from the YMCA Turkey Dash will provide scholarships to programs such as child care, summer camps, swim lessons, sports leagues and assistance to various area outreach programs within the Katy community.

Due to the fact that the Turkey Dash is a charity event, we are unable to issue refunds due to inclement weather or a change of plans.
