Turkey Trot Chicago 5K & 8K: Move Your Feet Before You Eat

Don’t feel guilty about all the turkey and fixings you’ll be chowing down on this year at Thanksgiving dinner. Why? Because you can be a part of the Turkey Trot Chicago 5K & 8K, happening at Lincoln Park! You can get a good cardio workout in before the big Thanksgiving feast as the race starts that very morning, bright and early. Whether you want to run, jog, or walk to the finish line, feel free to take your time on the course and go at your own pace. 

They’ll also have fun activities to enjoy before and after the race with their Turkey Trot Tailgate. The Tailgate features games like corn hole and football toss and a station to get a warm cup of apple cider. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to have fun with family and friends and give back to the community, assisting those in need with proceeds going towards the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
