This Thanksgiving Day, before the feast and football, lace up your running or walking shoes and meet Crestwood neighbors for some exercise and friendly competition for a good cause!
Whether you are a seasoned jogger competing for neighborhood bragging rights, or just looking for an excuse to reach for a second slice of pie later in the day, the Crestwood Turkey Trot is the perfect way to get your 10,000 steps in, take advantage of excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), and help benefit our neighbor, Rock Creek Park.
The Crestwood Turkey Trot will feature a 1 mile family run/walk (strollers and wagons welcome) and a 5k fun run. The starting line is at The Triangle, near 18th & Argyle.
Advance registration is $20 per person. Starting line registration will be $25 per person.
All proceeds from this event will benefit Rock Creek Conservancy!
Rock Creek Conservancy exists to restore Rock Creek and its parklands as a natural oasis for all people to appreciate and protect.
Rock Creek Conservancy is the only organization dedicated solely to Rock Creek and its parks. The creek meanders 33 miles through the Washington metropolitan area, crossing federal lands as well as district, city, county, and state boundaries. Although parkland borders much of the creek, the surrounding development threatens the health and beauty of these natural areas. Rock Creek Conservancy is uniquely positioned to foster outreach, education, and efforts to overcome threats to Rock Creek.
We work through a combination of education and advocacy. Our strategy is to build partnerships with government agencies, nonprofit organizations, community groups, and residents to work together to preserve Rock Creek for present and future generations.
This website and the Crestwood Citizens Association is supported by the dues of CCA members. Membership has its benefits including access to members-only resources and the knowledge that you are supporting a great neighborhood!
