Are you interested in getting the whole family active before you feast on Thanksgiving Day? Then be sure to RACE on down to Turner Field Thanksgiving morning starting at 7:30 am for Atlanta Track Club’s Thanksgiving Day races!
There are plenty of races for you and your kids to participate in. The Thanksgiving Day Half Marathon & 5K will be held on November 24. It also features the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia One Mile and 50m Dash for kids. It’s a great way to get the family active before sitting down and stuffing your face to your little heart’s content. We attended Atlanta’s Track Club’s Peachtree Road race earlier this year and I was truly pleased with just how orderly and organized the event was. We’ve never attended the Thanksgiving Day races but if history is an indicator then these races will go off without a hitch and you’ll be done in record time to enjoy your family and friends and a great meal.
Runners and walkers from all walks of life will come out with holiday spirit. Half marathon participants will receive a Mizuno ¼ zip jacket, and all other participants will get Mizuno long sleeve shirts. Plus, everyone can look forward to earning a Finisher’s medal! Also, Atlanta Track Club has once again joined forces with the Atlanta Mission in hopes of collecting a TON of clothing. Here’s how you can help them meet their goal:
- Donate clothing at race number pick-up
- Wear clothing you’d like to donate as your warmup clothes for the Thanksgiving Day Half Marathon events. You can shed your layers prior to the race start, and Atlanta Track Club will gather clothing to be cleaned and donated.
And if you’re really competitive, there’s loads of prize money to be won! Check this out:
- Overall Male and Overall Female 1st $2000
- Overall Male and Overall Female 2nd $1500
- Overall Male and Overall Female 3rd $1250
- Overall Male and Overall Female 4th $1000
- Overall Male and Overall Female 5th $250
That’s enough to make you want to run over to Turner Field and get moving! Race day registration is not offered for this event, so please register by November 16 at 11:59 p.m.
