Project ECHO's Thanksgiving Day 5K - Turkey Trot 2017
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.
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.
Want to turn up the fun? Join the locals, travelers and residents of the shelter who run in costume. You'll see Turkeys, Pilgrims, Native American Indians, Pumpkins and whatever else our fun runners can come up with. There's a prize for best costume so be creative and show us how you strut your stuffing!
