Dear Runners and Walkers: While this year we can't be together, together we can make a difference and help change the lives of animals in our community. For the past 12 years, The Fast and the Furriest Turkey Trot has raised thousands of dollars to help The Humane Society of Ocean City help those who cannot help themselves. Together, the funds raised by the participants have ensured food and shelter for the animals while they await their "furever" home. The Fast and the Furriest Turkey Trot has become a favorite family tradition. Last year was our most successful race to date. Let's not stop the momentum. The pandemic has touched all of our lives and changed it in ways that we never could have imagined. Together, let's not let the pandemic interrupt this critical fundraising event that is vital to our animal friends. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are not permitted to do an in-person event this year. So, in its thirteenth year, The Fast and the Furriest Turkey Trot will be a virtual event. To participate, runners and walkers must register on-line before midnight, November 4 th . No mail in registrations will be accepted. Runners and walkers must complete the 5k distance at a time of their choosing between November 5 th and noon, Thanksgiving Day, November 26 th . Times must submit via a link to the timer. Medals will be mailed to top 3 male and female winners in the following age categories: 6-9, 10-12, 13-15, 16-18, 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70+.
