48th Annual Alexandria Turkey Trot

A Thanksgiving morning tradition, the 46th annual Alexandria Turkey Trot — the Mid-Atlantic’s premiere Turkey Trot — returns to the streets of Del Ray on Thanksgiving morning.

The five-mile run/walk takes place at 9 a.m. on Th., Nov. 23 and 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 nonperishable food items to support ALIVE!, the oldest and largest private safety net in the City of Alexandria, VA dedicated to fighting poverty and hunger.
