Project ECHO 2018 Thanksgiving Day 5k Turkey Trot
This is a fun, family-friendly 5k for people of all ages and abilities. All proceeds from this event benefit Project ECHO homeless shelter and homeless individuals and families of Calvert County, MD.
In addition to being meaningful and fun, this is a timed race with awards in each age group. We encourage everyone to register early for the advanced registration discount and guaranteed t-shirt.
We invite you to turn up the fun with creative costumes. Join the locals, travelers and shelter residents who show up in costume. You'll see Turkeys, Pilgrims, Native American Indians, Pumpkins, Santa, Reindeer, and whatever else our fun runners can come up with.
Best costume wins bragging rights and a prize so be creative!
