We continue trucking through the many holiday events that are taking place in and around Miami in the coming months, and once the epic Halloween Supercar Run concludes this weekend, we’ll start looking ahead to Thanksgiving. While we already know how you’ll celebrate the actual holiday — with more food than you need, followed by political arguments with your in-laws — there are also all sorts of roadraces around this time. So, when and where are the best Turkey Trot races around Miami and Fort Lauderdale? We’ve found them for you.
Turkey Trot Races | Miami-Fort Lauderdale, FL
Fort Lauderdale Turkey Trot 2016 | Thursday, November 24th
Now celebrating its sixth year, the Fort Lauderdale Turkey Trot is already taking registration for this race. The day consists of a 5k run/walk and a Kids’ Dash, with awards going to top overall male and female finishers, top-three age group winners, and the winner of the Costume Contest.
Turkey Day Run Miami | Thursday, November 24th
Once of South Florida’s most popular Thanksgiving runs takes place in and around Tropical Park, and features both a 5k and a 10k option. It’s put on as a group effort between Baptist Health and Publix, and also offers a Turkey Day Kids Trot for kids aged two to nine years of age.
Boca Raton Turkey Trot | Thursday, November 24th
If you’re located north of the metro area, you might prefer to take part in the Boca Raton races, which also take place on the Thursday of Thanksgiving. Sponsored by the Adolph and Rose Levis JCC, this race is entering its eighth year, and features a 5k run/walk and a 1-mile fun run.
Key West 5k Hot Trot | Saturday, November 26th
Yes, this one is a little further away, but bear with us here. You know exactly what chaos the roads and sidewalks of Miami will look like on Thanksgiving weekend, right? So why not take a weekend in the Keys instead, and go for a nice run while you’re there? We’re guessing that you’re totally convinced.
As with everything we promote from a community standpoint here at Prestige Imports, we hope that you have a safe and healthy experience, and that you come see us at our North Miami Beach dealership soon.
