Central Texans have made it a tradition over the past 24 years to gather in downtown Austin on Thanksgiving morning for the annual Thundercloud Subs Turkey Trot 5-Miler. More than 20,000 will descend upon the South First Street Bridge this year, but it’s not the only choice for area residents and their visiting families.

To our knowledge there are five events in addition to the Thundercloud 5-Miler, starting with the Thankful Turkey 5K on November 22nd. Here’s a preview of all your options. If you’re race is missing, let us know and add it here: http://texasrunningpost.com/event-submission/
