Start Thanksgiving With a Trot

2 races taking place Thanksgiving Day

Feeling guilty about all the pumpkin pie, turkey and stuffing you'll have on your plate this coming Thanksgiving?  Why not lace up your running shoes and head off on a Turkey Day run.

“It’s a great way to burn those excess calories before the big dinner,” runner George LeCours told

In San Diego, There's the Father Joe's Thanksgiving Day 5K Run/Walk 2008.  It takes place Nov. 27 at 8 a.m. in Balboa Park.   There's also the PureFitness Thanksgiving Run for the Hungry 10K/5K.  That one starts at Petco Park East at 8 a.m. 

Whatever your race tastes, chances are you will find an event that suits you.  Most Thanksgiving Day races are relatively short in distance and offer kids events.
