Kick off your Thanksgiving Day celebration with a great morning run with friends and family. All participants receive a long sleeve thermal race shirt and a 6 inch pumpkin pie!


Start: 9 AM | 85 St. and Ward Parkway- east side of the Ward Parkway Center.  

This year both the 5K and 10K will start at the same time and in the same location.  You will line up according to your projected pace. Your start time is recorded when you cross the starting line so your time will be accurate and there is no need to pass people until you cross the start line. When you register, you will choose one of 3 categories; Elite Runner (8 min pace or faster), Runner (above 8 min pace) or Walker/Non-Competitive. Look for the pace signs on the side of the road and line up according to the pace you will run. Elite runners will go out first, then runners over 8 min pace and then walkers. At mile 1, the road will be split for 10K on the left side and 5K on the right side. By the time the 10K makes their second loop, 5K walkers and non-competitive runners will be over to the right lane. 

Benefits: The Single MOM KC and Harvesters Community Food Network.  Please visit our Charity Partners page for more information. 

Tiny Turkey Trot: A Kids Fun Run for ages 12 & under.  This run is not timed, is approximately 200 yards long and will start as soon as the last 5K participant is across the finish line.  All kids will receive a short sleeve cotton race shirt, a finisher medal, a goodie bag and a mini pie!  Parents are welcome to run alongside their tiny turkeys. 

Family Team Division: Families and groups of 4 or more receive a discounted entry! To register your family as a team, select the “5K member of a group/team” or “10K member of a group/team” option when you register.  The fastest three teams will win our team prizes.  The top 4 times per team are added together for the team score.
