Secure Your Spot at the Starting Line for the 37th Annual Turkey Chase in Bethesda


On November 28, 10,000 Bethesda locals are going to get out of bed and run a competitive 10K race before feasting with their family and friends. Sound like a good way to start your Thanksgiving day? Then head directly over to the 37th Annual Turkey Chase website, where you can learn more and register for the race. If you want to get your heart rate up, but 10K feels a bit far, you’ll be happy to know that the Turkey Chase offers three other levels of involvement, too: the 2-mile fun run for casual runners, the 1-mile challenge run for racers who excel at shorter distances, and the family-friendly tot trot that welcomes walkers, kids, and strollers. 

No matter which race you choose, you’ll be able to celebrate with everyone else at the finish line festival, which features plenty of drinks, snacks, and games, as well as wellness activities for the whole family. Proceeds from the race benefit the YMCA.
