2023 Grand Marshal (s)

Dana Lawhorne & John Porter

It is an honor to announce that long-time supporters of the Alexandria Turkey Trot and two of Alexandria’s most loved community members, Dana Lawhorne & John Porter are this year’s Grand Marshals. Both are lifelong Alexandrians who have dedicated their lives to public service. Dana Lawhorne recently retired as Sheriff of Alexandria after serving more than 43 years as a law enforcement officer, 16 years as Sheriff and 27 years with the Alexandria Police Department.

Dana was hesitant to accept the honor of Grand Marshal and riding in the lead car because he didn’t want to miss one of his favorite traditions for the past 40+ years of cheering on the Turkey Trot runners with his family and neighbors.

John Porter served the community and the children of Alexandria for more than 40 years as a teacher, assistant principal and for 22 years as the very beloved principal of TC Williams High School. John has participated in almost every Turkey Trot since it began 48 years ago.
