Kingstowne Striders Running Club in Alexandria VA

9th Annual Kingstowne Striders Turkey Trot

Thursday, November 22, 2018 @ 9 AM
Starbucks (5860 Kingstowne Center, Alexandria, VA)

Join us for the 9th annual Kingstowne Striders Turkey Trot Thanksgiving morning at 9:00am. Meet outside the Kingstowne Safeway (the Starbucks is the only thing open). ***Please note that we are meeting outside the Starbucks IN the Safeway not the standalone Starbucks store next to the Giant.

Registration is FREE for members! No free t-shirt and race timing will be very non-existent, but it will be a fun course. Burn some room for your turkey feast! (And pick up any last minute items at Safeway if needed!)

Per Tradition, our Turkey Trot is also the OFFICIAL START of the Kingstowne Striders Annual WINTER STREAK! It's a streak where you keep your clothes on (if you wish) - simply RUN or WALK 1 mile PER DAY from Thanksgiving Day thru New Year's Day! We offer plenty of options to join us, from Day 1 at our TURKEY TROT, to our four weekly group runs, to our Holiday Caroling Run (Dec. xx - details TBA) ending at our NEW YEAR'S DAY RELAY! 

Every Tuesday 6:30 PM Torch (headlamp!) Group Run from Honest Soul Yoga Flagship Location (Alexandria/Landsdowne)


Every Thursday 6:30 PM Torch (headlamp!) Group Run from Kingstowne Panera

Thursday Torch Run 11/8/18

Remember you headlamp and reflective vests as the days get shorter! 3 and 5 mile options available at both runs!

Runners from the Saturday Mt Vernon Trail run.

Come join Southern Fairfax County's Kingstowne Striders for a run from Fair Winds Brewing Company on the Friday after Thanksgiving. We will have 1, 3 mile and 5 mile route options with post run beers after. A food truck will also be on site.

The brewery opens at 12 noon. The group run starts at 1pm. Whether you #OptOutside with REI on Black Friday or want to "Spend Black Friday Running, Not Shopping" (as seen in Runner's World last year), whether you are joining us after your shopping :) or you already run with the Striders and have for years, or are joining us for the first time, we can't wait to see everyone!

If you can't run but would like to make a donation to a charity of your choice please go here:

This is Day 2 of the Kingstowne Striders WINTER STREAK!
