Houston Turkey Trot is a BakerRipley event held annually to challenge and encourage us to get up, get out, give back, and give thanks on a day devoted to family and togetherness. For nearly three decades, runners of all skill levels have made the Trot a Thanksgiving tradition, raising money and awareness to improve the lives of our neighbors by getting active in our very own communities. When we run together, no challenge is too great.

Just like family, Houstonians have been through a lot together. Come what may, we always come out the other side stronger, smarter, and better than we started. We're Texans—We aren't afraid of a challenge! This Thanksgiving, we're getting together with our brothers and sisters and neighbors to celebrate just how far we've come—and how much farther we can go.
