Thanksgiving is typically associated with food and football. However, Turkey Trots and Thanksgiving runs / walks are increasingly becoming an annual tradition for not only athletes, but families as a way to keep off the pounds and spend time together during the holidays. Turkey Trots are the events that bring out family members - mothers, fathers, siblings, kids and cousins - who have never run before.
