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!

Run Forest! Run!

What keeps you going? What keeps you moving forward? Some of us are training for our first 5k, while some of us are training to improve our personal record. Some have to work to schedule time to walk/run due to busy work schedules, children, volunteering, illness, etc. But guess what? Every single one of us is staying motivated and getting out there. Here are some of our favorite resources for motivation!

  1. Remember why you signed up! Are you running for fun? To prove to yourself you can? To do something good for your community? To serve as a great role model for your kids, friends, family?
  2. Wake Up Happy
  3. Dedicate five minutes and YouTube "Running Motivation". Watching others overcome their struggles is great motivation.
  4. Read about running. Love for running is contagious - catch it!
Whatever your motivation - don't forget it. We are eight weeks out and you CAN and you WILL succeed.
