The Turkey Trot is a Flemington tradition.  Since 1993, this 5K run (or 2 mile walk) has attracted residents, family and friends to this Thanksgiving morning event which winds its way through the streets of Flemington borough.  Besides being a lot of fun, the event has a serious side. This is the major fundraiser for The Center for Educational Advancement (CEA), a Hunterdon County organization that educates and works to employ people with significant disabilities.

To further our goals of healthy living and social responsibility, we are gathering a YMCA Team.   Employees, volunteers, members, and their family and friends are all welcome to run/walk as part of the Y Team.
