Thundercloud Subs 2016 Annual Turkey Trot in Austin,TX~Don't miss out!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

It’s hard to believe this year’s Turkey Trot marks the 26th year anniversary! The ThunderCloud Turkey Trot is the largest five mile run in Texas and one of the largest Turkey Trots in the nation with more than 20,000 participants. The race includes a five-mile run, one-mile run and a kids’ K that all take place outside the Long Center for the Performing Arts.

The Turkey Trot is an Austin Tradition observed by many Austinites. Four years ago our immediate family made the 5 mile trek together ....grandson Hudson was only 2 months old and rode comfortably the whole way!! At 4 he is running with the Marathon Kids and has run in 2 - 1K runs this year!

Gather your friends, family and start a new tradition with running or walking this Thanksgiving morning. Wear a costume..have fun with and get some exercise in before sitting down to your traditional Thanksgiving dinner. 

Where do ThunderCloud Subs donate the money raised? A 100% of the proceeds go to Caritas of Austin and they have raised almost $3 million! This provides education and support services to working poor people to help them become self-sufficient.

Sign up with your family and friends this year to be part of this fun and healthy family tradition, and to help support our community.

Good morning Dorie.  I could do the one mile walk if I were closer to the event.  Sigh
