The 9th Annual Thanksgiving Morning 5K Turkey Trot to Benefit Laurel Advocacy and Referral Services, Inc. is open to runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. Nearly 700 Laurel residents and visitors have made it their Thanksgiving Morning tradition to support LARS and raise awareness for homelessness by participating in our annual Turkey Trot. Our 5K course begins in front of the First United Methodist Church and meanders along the Patuxent River and throughout the beautiful historic town of Laurel. For those who prefer something more relaxed (but still just as fun!), join the Laurel Historical Society for a 1 Mile Historical Fun Walk as they highlight some of the major landmarks of Old Towne Laurel. Laurelites and visitors alike will enjoy this go-at-your-own-pace tour!
The 9th Annual Laurel 5K Turkey Trot to Benefit Laurel Advocacy Referral Services will be held on Thanksgiving Morning, Thursday, November 28th at The First United Methodist Church of Laurel located at 424 Main Street, Laurel, Maryland 20707.

Computerized timing operated by Race DC Timing (www.racedctiming.com) will be used to score the 5K. The system uses a computer tag embedded in the Bib (B-Tag) and records the exact time a runner crosses the starting line and the finish line, resulting in a net time for each runner. The B-tag is disposable. Overall awards will be based upon Gun time and age group awards will be based upon Net times.
