Turkey Trots – Run Oregon’s Ultimate Guide to 2016 Thanksgiving Runs

Over the past years, "turkey trot" races have become increasingly popular, encouraging people to get outside and participate in a race/run/walk on Thanksgiving morning before heading to their respective Thanksgiving celebrations. Most of the races offer at least a 5k distance, several also have another longer or shorter distance as an option. Many of the races have a food bank as a beneficiary or collect canned goods at the race. While RunOregon will be previewing these races individually and in detail, here is your guide to Thanksgiving Day races that we are aware of. If you know of a race that's missing, please let us know in the comments and we'll happily add it to the list!
