About The Race
This year, KIRG is partnering again with the Centreville YMCA for our Thanksgiving morning race! The Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K at Hunter's Oak Golf Club features a 5K course, bib-timing, age group awards, and allows dogs and strollers on the course! 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!
The Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K offers a 5K course. The scenic course includse a mix of flat and rolling terrain in a beautiful Scottish-Hills style setting with pond views, occasional wildlife sightings, woods, fields, and, of course, the golf course!
Please note: The path can be narrow in some spots. We kindly ask that walkers and those with strollers keep to the right of the path to leave the course as clear as possible for the runners. There will be one water stop on the course. Port o pots are only available in the parking area. There are none on the course.
