Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and for many, that means the Turkey Trot.  But don't wait, there are less than 1000 spots available.

The race takes place every Thanksgiving and involves around 14,000 of the bravest runners running an 8k race in questionable climates.

If you are training to run this for the first time, you should definitely be training outside.  You cannot train for this run on a treadmill.  It's a little longer than a 5k and the weather could literally be anything from 50 degrees to 10.  The year I ran it, it was 19 degrees at the race start.  It was the coldest race I had ever run.

But it was also one of the most entertaining.  People were dressed up and having a blast.  They were singing and running and it was a huge party.  You will never find another race like this.

But again, if you want to get in on this year's race to benefit the YMCA, you need to register now!

The race kicks off at 9am on Thanksgiving morning.
