This 21st annual Chester County Turkey Trot celebration, what has become a great holiday tradition, will be held on Thanksgiving morning, November 24, 2022 at Downingtown West High School! The event is a 5k race (2 Waves), 2 mile walk, and a kids’ fun run. There’s no better way to start this festive morning!! Historically, this race gets an impressive turnout of about 3,000 registered runners and we anticipate a terrific resurgence in numbers of seasoned trotters and new friends this year.

In addition to supporting the Downingtown West Cross Country team, proceeds of the race will benefit the Cure4Cam Childhood Cancer Foundation. Information on Cure4Cam is available at www.cure4cam.org. The Cure4Cam Childhood Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by family and friends in memory of Cameron Evans, a teammate, and friend who finished his race with leukemia in May 2012. Cameron was a gifted athlete and a compassionate, positive, and inspiring young man. His perseverance and spirit touched all of us.
