This year marks the 28th anniversary of the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning, November 22, 2018. The largest five-mile run in Texas and one of the largest Turkey Trots in the nation with nearly 20,000 participants, the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot is Austin’s beloved Thanksgiving Day tradition benefiting Caritas of Austin.
The event takes place at the Long Center for Performing Arts and includes a five-mile run (timed or untimed), one-mile walk, and Kids' K. All registrations include a T-shirt and run guide. In addition, the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot features live music, post-run snacks, children’s activities, fundraising opportunities, a raffle with a new car from First Texas Honda as the grand prize, team challenges, fun costumes, and more.
ThunderCloud Subs donates 100 percent of the proceeds from the Trot to Caritas of Austin— a nonprofit that helps Austin’s working poor and homeless gain self-sufficiency by providing critical resources such as housing, employment, food, and education. Since the event first began, the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot has raised nearly $3.5 million for Caritas of Austin.
The ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot has grown exponentially over the years, from 600 participants in 1991 to nearly 20,000 participants in 2017. Sign up today to be part of this fun, healthy, family-friendly Thanksgiving tradition, and to help support the local Austin community.
