Come to the Windy City for some pre-feast fun

Bird is the word on Thursday, November 26! Warm up your Thanksgiving appetite with Chicago’s longest running Thanksgiving tradition; the 38th Annual Turkey Day Run Chicago. Bring the whole family, come dressed for the part, and join runners, joggers and walkers for some lighthearted fun.

We’re also bringing back the turkey tailgate zone, featuring a variety of games for the whole family, including:

  •  Turkey bowling
  •  Football throw
  •  Cornhole toss
  • Costume contest
  • And more!

While you’re running your giblets off, you’ll be supporting the Greater Chicago Food Depository ensuring no Chicagoan goes hungry this Thanksgiving by bringing two cans of food to either packet pick-up or to the race day.

Come dressed the part, and join runners, joggers and walkers for some lighthearted fun. We can’t anticipate the weather, but we can guarantee fun! The event will take place no matter the weather, so be sure to bring an extra layer. Gear check is available at registration. The event is not responsible for any lost items.

New pre-race packet pickup locations and times announced for 2016!
