What’s the most popular day every year for road running races?
Ever since recreational runny became a trendy activity, and with more people going from couch to running, turkey trot races are extremely popular. People can wake up and get in a quick workout before going home and preparing the feast – or watching football.
In 2012, there were 490 Thanksgiving races with a total of 835,000 finishers – and it continues to grow after five years of momentum.
Brazen Racing hosts the Nitro Turkey Thanksgiving 5K, 10K, and Little Turkeys Race – and it’s a super fun event. The small kids love racing the giant Nitro Turkey.
