Happy Thanksgiving Week! We’re getting excited and putting the final touches on the 41st Annual Art Van Turkey Trot Chicago 5K|8K presented by Byline Bank taking place on Thursday, November 22.

For over 41 years runners, walkers and joggers have gathered in Chicago’s Lincoln Park to celebrate Thanksgiving and to aid the more than 1 in 6 Chicagoans who go hungry. We are honored you are choosing to join us in this celebration.

Turkey Trot Chicago, a signature event produced by Life Time, offers a myriad of options to help you and the family kick off the holiday the right way, including our 5K, 5K Youth, 8K and Plymouth Rock Ramble races. Turkey Trot Chicago also offers our holiday inspired Turkey Day Tailgate filled with games and fun for your entire family.

The Art Van Turkey Trot Chicago supports the Greater Chicago Food Depository. All participants are encouraged to bring non-perishable food products to packet pick up or on race day. Help do your part to ensure no Chicagoan goes hungry this holiday season. The goal is to gather more than 8 tons of food, with your help, we can do this! Lets fill the truck!!!

We’ll see you at the start line. Gobble, gobble!
