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 50th year that we have hosted this event. Join us for an event to be remembered.

The Turkey Trot run is hosted at the Mount Prospect Golf Course and is the oldest continual running event in the Chicagoland area.
