Sign up for this Thanksgiving’s Turkey Trek 5K

The Turkey Trek 5K is coming up on Nov. 23 at Pemberton Historical Park. Sign up today! 

What better way to start Thanksgiving than with running and eating pie?

Sign up for Wicomico County Recreation, Parks & Tourism’s ninth annual Turkey Trek 5K, and you can do just that.

I am the assistant director of marketing and public relations for Wicomico County Recreation, Parks & Tourism, so it’s my job to promote this race. I love that I get to do this as part of my job!

Even before I worked for Wicomico County, I had volunteered at this race with the Eastern Shore Running Club, which I’ve done the past few years. It’s a great way to enjoy the morning.

If you sign up by Wednesday, Nov. 1, you can guarantee a race shirt or opt for a long-sleeved shirt for an additional $5.
