Turkey Trot Chicago 5K & 8K: A Thanksgiving Tradition Returns Near The Paragon

November 24, 2021

Ready to start your Thanksgiving Day with a little bit of sweat? It’s that time of year again, and registration for the Turkey Trot Chicago 5K & 8K is open! This epic race takes place along the stunning Chicago Lakefront Trail for gorgeous views that will keep you going for miles. Registration is only open until it sells out, so while you can possibly register on the day of the race, it’s better to be safe and register in advance. When you register, you’ll receive a limited edition long-sleeve race shirt, a finisher medal to display proudly at home, a complimentary beer for those 21+ of course, and access to the Turkey Day Tailgate festival. You can’t leave without participating in that; it’s fun for the whole family. 

The festival will have a variety of games set up like football toss, cornhole, as well as a tasty warm apple cider station for refueling post-race. It’s a great way to gather with the community before enjoying a Thanksgiving meal with friends and family. Register today!
