Find a Turkey Trot Near You

There is no reason to just eat and eat and eat on Thanksgiving. You can start your day off with a Turkey Trot, and I am not talking about the ragtime dance from centuries past, but if you want to do that I am sure you would be burning some calories.

Nope, I talking about Turkey Trots, aka Gobble Runs, as in fun runs. Many towns sponsor fun runs on Thanksgiving Day so you can get out into your community, run with your neighbors, and start your day of indulgence off with some exercise.

The races vary in length, but most are 5k (3.2 miles) and are considered fun runs. So the focus is on having fun rather than the competition. Meaning nobody is going to think your are ruining the race if you walk the entire course.

To find a run in your area check out the Turkey Trot race locator at You can sign up for your race on, too! I will be running in early in the morn on T-day, on the outskirts of Philly. Wish me luck!
