The 34th annual Turkey Chase is here! Join us this year for the best one yet with your friends and family to kick off the Thanksgiving holiday with one of Bethesda's greatest traditions.
On Thanksgiving morning more than 9,000 participants and hundreds of spectators show up at the Turkey Chase Race. The event features a 2 miles fun run, a USATF-certified 10K race, and a 50 meter Tot Trot where kids chase the mascot Turkey. Turkey Chase is the largest annual fundraiser for both the YMCA and Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rotary Club. Over $4.5 million has been raised since the race's inception in 1982 to benefit Montgomery County through YMCA programs for at-risk children and families in our community and local and international programs supported by the B-CC Rotary Club.
