Run Full Speed Into the Holiday Season During the Annual Turkey Trot 10K and Turkey Trot Mile 2015, Taking Place Nov. 21 Right Here at Quantico
November 2, 2015
Run full speed into the holiday season — quite literally! — by participating in the Turkey Trot 10K! Returning on the morning of Saturday, Nov. 21, this popular annual road race invites runners 8 years of age and older to pound the pavement in their favorite Thanksgiving-themed costume. The 6.2-mile course, which starts and finishes behind Lejeune Hall here at Quantico, will lead participants along curvy roads and alongside the Potomac River. Not much of a runner? No problem: The day's events will also include a one-mile walk, which leads to the same finish line!
Once you cross the finish line, be sure to stick around to meet bunnies, goats, and a mini horse at the event's petting zoo! Photo ops with live turkeys will also be available, and race winners will be awarded a frozen turkey or a pumpkin pie.
