Turkey Trek 5K Runners

Annual Turkey Trek

Before you gear up for your big Thanksgiving feast, come run the Turkey Trek 5K along Pemberton Historical Park's beautiful nature trails in Salisbury, Maryland. The race winds through Pemberton Park's forests, meadows and wetlands. The course is mostly flat, with one or two small hills. Refreshments and holiday pie will be available after the race (it is Thanksgiving after all)!

All proceeds from the race will go directly towards Pemberton Historical Park's environmental education programs. Thank you for your support of the Park!
