Mosby Woods Turkey Trot & Sidewalk Stroll

Thursday November 26th, 2020

Fairfax, VA

Official Website


A low-key 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run/walk through our neighborhood to celebrate our community and neighbors, families, health, friendship, and the spirit of the holiday — as well as a chance to support our neighbors in need.  There is no formal entry fee for this event, but all participants are asked to bring a non-perishable food item as a “virtual entry fee.”  All non-perishables received will be donated to the Food For Others food bank in Merrifield nearby.  Non-participant spectators can donate food items for FFO too!

FFO particularly welcomes the following types of items: canned meats (ham, turkey, chicken, tuna, beef), peanut butter, canned stew/chili, cereal, canned fruit in juice, Mac and cheese, dried or canned beans, pasta, pasta sauce, 1 lb. bags of rice, 100% fruit juice, and vegetable oil.

Please note: race number/bib pickup will take place from approximately 0745 until 0850 on Thanksgiving Day at the start (in front of Mosby Woods Pool).  See directions for location details.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Given the low-key nature of this event, no roads will be closed for this event. THIS IS NOT A ROAD RACE. Rather, the run/walk course consists entirely of paved sidewalks, paved/gravel trails, and safe street crossings.
