Last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the world was shut it down. This included all Holiday events but this year many are returning in full force including the annual Alexandria Turkey Trot.
This year’s Turkey Trot is happening at 9 am on Thanksgiving Morning. The event is held in Del Ray and is organized by DC Road Runners and the Del Ray Business Association. The five-mile run/walk will allow participants to explore the sights of Del Ray, starting and ending at George Washington Middle school. Those who would like to walk instead of running will have their own starting area and dogs are allowed to partake too!
