Runners are invited to take part in a Central County Thanksgiving tradition and win some of their holiday supper at the eighth annual 5K Turkey Trot Nov. 26.

The race will be at 11: 30 a.m. at Anne Arundel Community College's Siegert Field.

First-place winners in six categories win turkeys. Runners-up take home apple pies. The first 70 entrants receive free T-shirts.

Last year, about 70 runners and walkers competed. Broadneck High School soccer player Gretchen Oaksmith won the women's trial in 20 minutes, 26 seconds. Tim Kelly, a freshman on the community college's cross country team, won the men's trial in 17: 34.

Water and snacks will be provided at the end of the race.

Runners can pick up race packets from 8: 30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 25 at the college's Student Activities front desk in the Student Services Center, or from 9: 30 a.m. until starting time at Siegert Field.

Entry fees before the day of the race are $7 for individuals and $12 for mixed-doubles teams. Fees on race day are $9 for individuals and $15 for mixed-doubles teams. The deadline to register is 10: 30 a.m. on race day.
