The Fun:

Join the Fleet Feet Sports crew as we host the 7th Annual Thanksgiving "Thanksgivingukkah" Turkey Trot 5K Fun Run Sponsored by Mizuno!  This is a beautiful tour "by run" of the downtown Annapolis area that is open to public! This event is not officially timed, but we will have a finisher's clock at the end of the run.

Love Mizuno as much as we do? All participants who wear Mizuno shoes at the event will receive a free gift from Mizuno! Also, we'll be awarding a GRAND PRIZE from Mizuno to the participant with the BEST TURKEY COSTUME!

Strollers, Kids, and Dogs are welcome to join in on the fun! 

The Course:

Because of the growth of this event and restrictions with the city - we have changed our route this year to a 5K. The course will be throughout downtown Annapolis sidewalks, but traffic will be at a minimum. The run with both start and finish at Fleet Feet Sports Annapolis. FREE Parking is available along the streets in Eastport and Downtown. We have also arranged with local businesses for you to park in these parking lots. PLEASE plan to carpool as best you can!

Please check out the course and make yourself familiar with it here: http://www.mappedometer.com/?maproute=139585

There will be port-o-potties available in our parking lot. Also - light refreshments and breakfast (provided by Naval Bagels!) will be provided post-run.

Like last year, for crowd control on the route, we will be separating the run into three groups:

  • 9:00am - Group 1: 8:30/min mile or faster
  • 9:03am - Group 2: 8:30/min mile - 10:00/min mile
  • 9:06am - Group 3: 10:00/min mile or slower. (Best for strollers/dogs.)

Please be aware of these groups and we will take care of letting you know when each group is going off!

Sign ups:

As always, this is a fun run and FREE to the public. We are asking that all participants make a $5 - $10 donation per participant to go towards our charity, The Bowen Foundation for Autism. The Bowen Foundation for Autism is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that works to help families with autism in Maryland.

    I registered for the Turkey Trot with my brother, Mike Arthur, and father Sam Arthur. I never received a confirmation email-- do you have us registered in your record or should I submit our information again.
