Turkey Trot


Since 1963, on Thanksgiving morning, the Mt. Prospect Jaycees have also hosted this annual Turkey Trot for families in the Mount Prospect community. This year will mark the 52nd year that we have hosted this event. Join us for an event to be remembered.

The Turkey Trot run is the oldest continually running event in the Chicagoland area.  We will be at a New Location this year. Please check back for details in the next couple of weeks.
