So, you’ve decided to do a little bit of exercise before gorging on tons of food this Thanksgiving. There are lots of people interested, and thus a number of events scheduled for Thanksgiving Day.
Most of these are 1-3 mile walk/run, and there are several events in the Phoenix area. This list will help you select an event based on location, distance, and cost.
Phoenix (Wesley Bolin Plaza) — $39/person, 3 miles, start at 8:15am.
Anthem — $25 (before Nov 16, then $30), 3 miles, start at 9am.
Mesa — Turkey Trot (2 mile or 1 mile) in Mesa (Red Mountain Park) — Starting at 8:15am or 8:30 depending on the distance, $15/person.
With all of these races, the race fee includes a t-shirt and bib number/tag. Walking the course is welcome, strollers too for the youngsters — just start at the back of the line so runners don’t get mad at you :-).
