Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot

10th Annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot 5K Fun Run

DATE: Thursday, November 24th, 2016 (Thanksgiving Day!) at 9:00am

The Fun:

Join the Fleet Feet Sports crew, and our corporate sponsor USAA, as we host the 10th Annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot 5K Fun Run. The run is a gorgeous tour of downtown Annapolis and will benefit our charity partner, Homes for America. This event is not officially timed, but we will have a finisher's clock at the end of the run.

Once again we will award a prize for the best turkey costume.  Are you ready to get creative? 

Strollers, kids, and dogs are welcome to join in on the fun! 

The Course:

Our Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot will take place throughout downtown Annapolis. The run will take place entirely on the sidewalks, but traffic will be at a minimum. The run will start and finish at Fleet Feet Annapolis' original location at 318 6th Street in Eastport (currently Homes for America). FREE parking is available along the streets in Eastport and downtown. PLEASE plan to carpool as best you can.

Please check out the course and make yourself familiar with it here.

There will be port-o-potties available in the parking lot, alone with expanded water comfort stations pre and post race. Also - Marty's famous homemade pumpkin bread and refreshments will be provided post-run.

As in previous years, we will be separating the run into three groups for crowd control on the route.

  • 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.)



We will have t-shirts again this year for a $20 donation. To receive one, simply follow the sign-up link. Any extras will be available after the run on a first come, first served basis. T-shirts can only be guaranteed to those who register before November 8th.


Sign up!

As always, this is a fun run and FREE to the public.  However, we are asking that participants make a $20 donation per participant with a shirt or $10 without a shirt to our charity partner, Home for America. In order to avoid previous year's lines and not have to worry about carrying checks or cash with you on the day of the run, we are making it easier to donate online ahead of time.  This year we are also offering a convenient, in-store shirt pick up Nov 20-23rd so you don't have to wait in line on Thanksgiving Day.
