ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot
November 23, 2017 @ 9:00 AM - 11:00 PM
The ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot, Austin’s beloved Thanksgiving Day tradition benefiting Caritas of Austin, will return for another year of gobbling good times on Thanksgiving Day. The Trot includes a five-mile run, one-mile walk, and a Kids K—all centered around the Long Center for the Performing Arts. The family-friendly event is the largest five-mile run in Texas with more than 20,000 participants each year. Online registration is available at www.thundercloud.com.
All proceeds from the Trot benefit Caritas of Austin, a nonprofit supporting Austin’s working poor and homeless people. ThunderCloud has raised more than $3.1 million for Caritas since the event began in 1991—helping thousands of Central Texans put food on the table, find stable housing, and achieve self sufficiency.
The Stepping Stone School Kids K will begin at 8:45 a.m., the timed five-mile starts at 9:30 a.m., the untimed five-mile starts immediately afterwards, then the one-mile walk starts immediately after that. Winners will be announced and awarded after the run at 10:40 a.m.
