Join us for the 15th Annual CHS XC Turkey Trot sponsored by MedStar Sports Medicine, a fun filled morning of running/walking, music and incredible prizes! 

We are always humbled by our opportunity to use proceeds from our annual race to support local families and organizations.  This year we are proud to give back to the people at Portalli's restaurant in Ellicott City who have so selflessly given our race event so much financial over the years.  After losing their newly opened resturant yet again in the second Main Street Ellicott City flood eariler this year we know that our donations from this years race will be greatly appreciated.

Both the 1 mile and 5k courses are cross-country style, on the same course where your Comet Cross Country team races!

Register TODAY to get the early bird special! Only the first 600 registered participants are guaranteed a FREE UNDER ARMOUR Race Day T-Shirt.

Course Information

  • This race was designed to welcome you into the world of cross country running so that as you run or walk on race day you can be connected with the very athletes your registration is supporting.  We plead with Mother Nature to be kind to us, but there are times when parts of the course are muddy or slick.  Please use appropriate caution on race day to ensure your safety and the safety of others.  To this affect, there may be changes to the race course due to weather which is out of our control.  Any and all course changes are done with your safety in mind.  For this same reason, strollers and dogs are not permitted on the race course.  The first 300m of the course is on road, the remainder of the course is on grass, therefore racing spikes with the spikes in are not encouraged.
  • Please wear your bib and its corresponding timing chip on your Outer most layer of clothing to ensure it registers properly. 
  • When on the race course, please stay to the Right and allow faster runners to pass on the left.  

Important Race Information:

  • All race bibs are non-transferrable.  Transferring bibs negatively affects race results across genders and age groups and has the potential to strip a deserving athlete of an award. Please be mindful of this.
