Turkey Trot Overview

The CVPCA's annual Turkey Trot is one of our community's most popular events, offering serious (and not so serious) runners with a 5K route through our beautiful neighborhood on Thanksgiving morning.  Refreshments, music, and prizes to the top finishers and costumes await runners and their supporters at the finish line.  

More than just a fun run, the Turkey Trot is also a major fundraiser.  Since 2016, approximately $10,000 has been raised for the benefit of A Wider Circle, a Silver Spring-based community organization dedicated to eliminating poverty.
