Who else is ready for Thanksgiving? The 44th Annual Turkey Day Run is confirmed to take place in Charleston this November 25, and registration is open for runners of all ages.

Known as a Charleston Thanksgiving staple, the Turkey Day Run was once held from the Holy City to Summerville and was later changed to a relay race.

Nowadays, it’s a fun activity for people of all ages, featuring a 5k run and walk for adults, a post-race celebration, and a children’s fun run.

The five-kilometer race winds through downtown Charleston and out to the peninsula. Runners and walkers will be able to work out while enjoying the beautiful scenery and historic landmarks through a semi-flat course.

Important: No strollers will be allowed on the course.

Have fun after the run!

This is not only a running. Celebrate Thanksgiving with all participants in a post-race celebration that includes music, free food, and beer (for those 21+) as well as many fun activities for the younger ones.
