The Story of Turkey Trots
More than 1,000,000 runners will cross finish lines at over 1,000 races across the country tomorrow. Stepping to the start line at a turkey trot has become a staple for many households on Thanksgiving morning. Chances are, you or someone that you know is running a Turkey Trot. So what is the story behind the turkey trot anyway?.
The First Turkey Trot
In 1896, six men lined up to run the Buffalo Y.M.C.A.’s first-annual turkey trot. “Maybe they wanted to burn off the calories before they had their nice, big Thanksgiving feast,” Kathy Romanowski, of Y.M.C.A. Buffalo-Niagara, said, when speculating on the race’s possible origins. Of those six, four finished the eight-kilometer race. One blamed a late breakfast for his inability to do the same.
The Boston Marathon might be America’s most famous race, but the turkey trot is the country’s oldest continuous one.
Why Americans Love Turkey Trots
The first marathon was a harrowing and fatal footrace for one man, who ran 26.22 miles to deliver crucial news about the Greeks' victory at the Battle of Marathon. The story you just read about six men lining up at the Buffalo Y.M.C.A to shed calories ahead of their Thanksgiving feast is a far less glorious story. So why do Americans like Turkey Trots?

What do Thomas Jefferson, LeBron James, and the British royal family have in common? They all invest in wine and whiskey.
