    A Thanksgiving morning tradition, the 43rd annual Alexandria Turkey Trot is the Mid-Atlantic's premiere Turkey Trot. With nearly 6,000 runners -- including some of the fastest elite runners on the east coast -- the Turkey Trot is a great way to start your Thanksgiving morning.

    “I chose the Alexandria Turkey Trot mostly because it has a history of fast competition and a unique small-town feel to the race,” said elite runner Matt Deters. "Several of my teammates have done the race in the past and it has been their favorite Turkey Trot.”

    The five-mile run/walk, which takes place at 9 a.m. on Th., Nov. 22, goes through the heart of Del Ray, starting and ending at George Washington Middle School. The event is Metro accessible via the Braddock Road Metro Station. Dogs and strollers are welcome, and have their own starting area.

     In the spirit of the holiday, runners and spectators are encouraged to bring two nonperishable food items to support ALIVE!, a nonprofit organization serving Alexandria’s needy.
