About the Race

This year, KIRG is partnering with the Centreville YMCA for our Thanksgiving morning race!The Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K at Hunter's Oak Golf Club will feature a new 5K course, bib-timing, age group awards, and will allow dogs and strollers on the course! As in past years, race proceeds and food collected at the race will be donated to local charities, including St Martin's Ministries, an outreach serving over 250 poor and homeless people per month on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Start your Thanksgiving morning with family and friends on a scenic course in a beautiful setting at Hunter's Oak Golf Club. Give "thanks" by knowing that your registration fee and the non-perishables you donate will help those in need in surrounding communities. Costumes encouraged, so be festive and creative!

Please bring at least 2 non-perishable Food Donations to benefit Saint Martin Ministries, a local outreach serving over 250 poor and homeless people per month on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Our goal is to collect at least 1300 pounds of food!
