The Montauk Turkey Trot Is Fun If You Are A Runner, Drudgery If You Just Want To Eat

Every year Montauk holds a race called the Montauk Turkey Trot/Run For Fun event and every year at this time, I’m usually progressively getting out of shape.

Usually I end up going to this run and nearly pass out, or I don’t go and feel like I wimped out.

The Montauk turkey run is short if you are a runner. It’s only 3 miles for the short race, and if you are out of your mind crazy, you can sign up to run the 6 mile race. Both of these races take place at 6 a.m. in the morning in the cold in Montauk.


Well, it is kinda fun if you are a runner, but if you aren’t really a runner and haven’t been since high school, a 3 mile run is in the same category of fun as hitting yourself in the face with a baseball bat. I’ll probably go this year though, just to remind myself of how my glory days of running the 400 meter for Bonac are long gone. Information is below.
