Registration is $40 per member. And if you’d like to get the whole family involved, we are also offering a number of Family 5K Training Programs open to youth aged 8 and up with a parent. Register the whole family for $70 (includes as MANY family members as you’d like). Non-members rates available.
For more information please contact your local Y Center.
My name’s Robyn, and I work at the Y in Central Maryland. I recently moved here from Australia: you know, the land of terrifying spiders and Hugh Jackman. Now, between the blue claw crabs, the Chincoteague oysters, and ‘dem O’s… (see dorky picture) I’ve fallen in love with all things Charm City, including the Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K! And—like this year’s summer—the trot’s coming in hot (in the land down under that means really big), and we want you to join in on the fun!
Registration for the Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K opens on September 1. With seven locations in Central Maryland, our 5K is perfect for anyone looking for:
an active morning of fun the whole family can enjoy;
the opportunity to slip in a cheeky 5K run before the weather turns frosty;
a way to (semi) guilt-proof your Thanksgiving meal;
a non-ironical way to wear that turkey hat hiding in the back of your closet (you know the hat we’re talking about);
a tangible way to raise funds for children and families in Central Maryland who live in poverty.
While you’re waiting, why not let your friends and family (and your old college roommate) know on Facebook that you’re going? It’ll just take a click!
