Welcome to the Official Site of The Y in Central Maryland Turkey Trot Charity 5K! We are excited to have you join us for this Thanksgiving morning tradition.

Adults, children and families from across the region come together to not only run (or walk, jog, stroll), but to raise funds so that children living in poverty in Central Maryland have access to Y programs that will forever shape their lives.

Thank you for being part of something good on Thanksgiving Morning!

Recipe: Gingerbread Pumpkin Smoothie

This weekend marks the true start of Autumn! Are you ready? To help get you in the mood for all things fall and provide your body nutrients (vitamin A & fiber) we are sharing a deliciously nutritious smoothie recipe from Oh She Glows. Behold the Gingerbread Pumpkin Smoothie . . .

Yield: 1 serving

1 cup almond milk (keep some extra on hand)
1/4 cup rolled oats
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup pureed pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filing)
1 tbsp blackstrap molasses
1 small frozen banana
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
pinch nutmeg
crushed ice

1. Soak the oats, almond milk, and chia seeds for at least an hour or overnight. This helps them digest better and it also gives the smoothie a smoother texture.

2. Place all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth. Add ice if desired.

3. Pour into your favorite glass, kick up your socked feet and enjoy. Or throw it in a cup and run out the door!
