Before you sit down to a Thanksgiving feast, we recommend some pre-emptive calorie burning. One of the most fun ways to do that? A turkey trot, of course. Check out the following Central Texas options:

  • The Georgetown Turkey Trot includes a 5-mile run/walk, 1-mile walk, and a Kids Fun Run. The kids’ race begins at 7:45 a.m., followed by the other races at 8 a.m. All events start and finish at the corner of Main and Seventh streets in downtown Georgetown. Proceeds support Meals on Wheels of Williamson County, Friends of the Georgetown Parks (Park Pals) and the Caring Place, which will collect canned goods. Entry fee is $35 through Nov. 23; $40 on race day. Register here online through Wednesday or in person on race morning.
