If you still are running around making last-minute Thanksgiving plans, you might be interested to know that you can still get an 11-pound turkey for free.

All you have to do is win a race.

This morning, the Towson Family YMCA is playing host to the ninth annual Turkey Trot 5K race. Top overall winners, as well as the top finishers in each age group, will receive a turkey. Registration begins at 7 a.m. and costs $30.

The Towson YMCA is also offering a 2K Walk/Fun Run and Child Watch activities for kids. In addition, contestants and their families are encouraged to support the YMCA's canned food drive.

The Towson Family YMCA is located at 600 W. Chesapeake Ave., Towson, and can be reached at 410-823-8870. More details are available at www. For specifics about the Turkey Trot, contact Dave Cooley at 410- 377-8882.

Annapolis tree

At 6 p.m. on Sunday, head to the Annapolis City Dock to witness the grand illumination of the city's Christmas tree.

If free admission is not enough to entice you, Santa is scheduled to make an appearance.

The event is co-sponsored by the city of Annapolis and Annapolis Jaycees.
