The Turkey Day 5K takes place early on Thanksgiving Day at South Lakes High School.

The race features something for all ages.

The full 5K starts at 8 a.m. There is a one-mile fun run/walk that starts at 8:50 a.m. And for the youngest participants, a 100-yard tot trot at 9 a.m.

The race starts and finishes on the track at the SLHS stadium. The course will be run on trails and paths near the school. Roads will not be affected.

Potomac River Running, organizers of the race, is partnering with One Warm Coat this holiday season. PR Races will be accepting clean, gently used coats at this year’s Turkey Day 5K. OWC will collect the coats on race day and get them to people who need them.

Online registration is $35 through Nov. 23. Online registration closes on Nov. 23 at 8 p.m. Race-day registration ($40) may be available, but organizers expect the race to sell out.

Kids’ fees are $25 for the 5K ($30 on race day); $20 for the fun run ($25 race day); and free (sign up at the race) for the tot trot.
