Thank you, Turkey Trot sponsors!
For year 11, we’re hitting the trails at Jefferson Patterson Park. JPPM is located in Saint Leonard, just 12 miles south of Project ECHO. This park has miles of trails, views of the Patuxent River, and more historical features than we can list. It’s a beautiful place for a race and we can’t wait to see you there!
