The Awards Committee is collecting nominations for the annual awards and we want your input. If you know Annapolis Striders who have had a really good year and who ran at least five Annapolis Striders races (including non-Championship series races), please nominate them.
PLEASE NOTE: Volunteering is a part of the awards requirement. If your nominee has not volunteered with the Annapolis Striders they are not eligible for an award.
Calling all Fleet Feet and past 10K Class Alumni! Bobby and Karen Levin from the Reisterstown Fleet Feet are retiring! To honor their retirement and their previous sponsorship of the Cold Turkey 10K and the 10K Running Class for over 10 years, we have asked them to be our honorary guests at the Cold Turkey 10K this year. Come on out and show your support by doing one more run with them! If you dress like a turkey, you could win a prize!
Looking forward to seeing everyone on November 24th at Arundel Middle School.

The Turkey Chase Charity Race at YMCA Camp Letts is a truly unique event in our region. Held on our beautiful wooded peninsula the event has something for everyone. The free to enter mascot race allows your kids, and the big kid in you to race against our own Turkey, as well as local mascots from across the region. The 5K is a family friendly event for runners and walkers of all abilities. Our Turkey is a Participant in the 5K so you will be able to see how your training has compared to his. The 10K run takes you off camp and onto the beautiful Smithsonian property before returning to Camp Letts. Both 10K/5K events are now chip timed!!! While we love our furry friends, we encourage you to leave all pets at home.

The course is mostly in deep woods at Rosaryville State Park, though there is some running in meadows also. The trail is largely single track; not very technical. The Start (also the Finish) is at the Pavilion picnic area about three quarters of a mile from where the runners enter the single-track perimeter trail.
Hot food after the race starting about 11:30. The race will end at 4:00 pm.
The course has two aid stations about 4 1/2 miles apart. There will be a bag drop at the first aid station. We will transport bags from the Start to the bag drop site when the race begins and return them to the pavilion after the race–or you can pick up your bag as you leave the park.
