YWCA Turkey Trot 2021

Saturday, November 20

YWCA Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia will host their 41st Annual Women’s Turkey Trot 5K on Saturday, November 20.

This race is a part of the YWCA promotion of women’s health and safety, and is one of the longest running women only races in the region. In 2021, women’s health is more important than ever. Staying active and doing so safely can help contribute to your mental health and well-being during these times of high stress. In fact, during times of lockdown it was reported that more than half of adults (60%) and over two-thirds of young people (68%) said their mental health deteriorated. The YWCA is promoting physical activity in order to boost the immune system, prevent weight gain, reduce stress and anxiety as well as improve mood and sleep.


The event is live on the State of Franklin Track Club.
