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. Refreshments and holiday pie will be available after the race (it is Thanksgiving, after all)! There will be chip timing again this year. 

All proceeds from the race go toward Pemberton Nature Camp and other environmental education programs. Thank you for your support of the park.
