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!

Turkey Trot Charity 5K Ambassadors

Have you spoken with a Turkey Trot Charity 5K Ambassador yet? If you signed up to run or walk with us Thanksgiving morning you will hear from our amazing Ambassadors.

Our Ambassadors are a special group of dedicated and caring Y volunteers who are reaching out to all registered runners and walkers to thank you for signing up! Since our Event Directors cannot personally thank you, our Ambassadors are! Ambassadors are also reaching out to see if you have any questions and to see if you need any help setting up your online fundraising page.

You will receive an email from your local Turkey Trot Charity 5K Ambassador tomorrow and then another one right before the event. These emails are full of training tips, fundraising ideas, a healthy recipe, and details about the day of the event, so be sure to keep an eye out for it. It is a must-read!

Happy Halloween! We will be back tomorrow with our Friday recipe!
