Before you stuff your face with stuffing, start Thanksgiving Day off right with a morning run. Many of these Turkey Trots are short distances (usually 5K-10K) and perfect for runners of all levels. Some also collect donations for local charities. Whether you're trying to race your relative or wear a turkey costume, these runs are a good bet.
