Five Cleveland Turkey Trots to run on Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is this Thursday, somehow. Northeast Ohio residents (and visitors) trying to preemptively burn some calories before the big meal have no shortage of options.
What's happening: Turkey trots, the longstanding tradition of holding fun runs and races the morning of the holiday.
- Here are several area turkey trots this year:
Cleveland Turkey Trot: 8:45am/9:30am at the corner of East 9th Street and Lakeside Avenue downtown, $40.
- Cleveland's grandpappy of turkey trots weaves through downtown and Ohio City.
Aurora Turkey Trot & Mashed Potato Mile: 8am/8:30am at Aurora High School, $30.
- Non-perishable food donations will go to local food pantry Volunteers of America.
Chagrin Falls Turkey Trot: 9am at Chagrin Falls High School, $25.
Penton Memorial 10k Cross Country Turkey Trot: 8:30am at Lorain County Community College, $25.
- The rugged 10k will traverse the LCCC cross-country course.
Turkey Dash 5k: 9am at Avon High School, $40.
- The annual Thanksgiving tradition in Avon is a fundraiser for the Karen P. Nakon Breast Cancer Foundation.
- 10am Saturday.
🥶 Be smart: Layer up, as the Thanksgiving forecast is extremely chilly (low of 28). It should warm up to a more temperate 38 as the morning progresses.
