Description

40th Annual Turkey Chase Charity Race Returns In-Person!

YMCA Bethesda-Chevy Chase and Bethesda Chevy Chase Rotary are proud to bring back their popular 10k race to thousands of runners on Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 24th!

Historically the largest race in Montgomery County, the Turkey Chase Charity Race returns in all of its glory with its classic 10k race and a 2-mile fun run.

To ensure everyone can participate, this year's chase also offers virtual walking, running, biking, and swimming events.

Previous years' events have drawn more than 9,000 runners, and raised a total of $8.5M to date in support of critical community programming for both YMCA Bethesda-Chevy Chase and Bethesda Chevy Chase Rotary.  Every year, dedicated runners of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities go at their own pace to create this important funding lifeline, which actively supports area youth, families, and seniors in need.Race sponsorships are still available. Individuals may also expand their impact with an additional “Food for Good” donation, providing a week’s worth of local produce for those in need while also supporting local farmers.

Support your community!
