Once again, Philadelphia Insurance Companies and The Maguire Foundation are proud to sponsor the 27th Turkey Trot to Benefit Face to Face! On Thanksgiving morning, join the tradition with other runners on a 5 Mile USATF Certified (#PA 18031NB) course along Forbidden Drive, winding through beautiful Wissahickon Park. A one-mile fun run/walk begins immediately after the 5 mile race goes off so there is something for each family member to enjoy. It’s a fun and meaningful way to begin your Thanksgiving Day.

Join us outside in nature, running in support of Face to Face, a human services organization providing meals, nurse-managed health care, legal services, social services, and children’s programs in Germantown for those struggling in poverty. This year, we are offering a new challenge. If you secure at least $250 in pledges, you will receive a complimentary race slot! Contact Suzanne Laurito at for details.
