5K “Strut Your Stuffing” Turkey Trot
Project ECHO proudly presents the 4th Annual 5K “Strut Your Stuffing” Turkey Trot for Thanksgiving Day 2015! Early registration is encouraged as shirts are guaranteed only for the first 250 participants. Early registration will be accepted through midnight of November 18th; so be sure to mark your calendars and register early! Same-day registration will be available the morning of the race at 6:00 a.m. The race will begin at 7:00 a.m. for runners and 7:15 a.m. for walkers and strollers. We anticipate the event will end at approximately 9:00 a.m. The race begins and ends at The Arc of Southern Maryland’s Community Resource Center.
To add your own fun to the event try running in Thanksgiving Day costumes! All we need are a few Turkeys being chased by Pilgrims being chased by American Indians! This is a fun, healthy way for the whole family to give “Thanks” on Thanksgiving while giving back to the community. Where else can you get in a Thanksgiving Day workout while simultaneously helping the homeless?
