A turkey trot is much shorter than the NYC Marathon, but if you’ve caught the running bug, it’s not too late to race through the streets of New York City! Turkey trots take place throughout the city on Thanksgiving and are a seriously healthy way to skip out on early morning meal prep (or claim exhaustion when it comes time to help with the dishes). If you’re too hungover from a Thanksgiving Eve bar binge, you don’t even have to run: Take a break from watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade or Thanksgiving movies just to cheer on the runners. Our advice? Don't wait to sign up: spaces for most of these turkey trots will fill up before the end of October.
