Arizona Thanksgiving Turkey Trots and Fun Runs

Arizona Thanksgiving Turkey Trots and Fun Runs
Image placeholder title

A favorite Thanksgiving Tradition growing up was for my family to participate in a Fun Run or Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Morning. I have searched all over and gathered all the Fun Runs in Arizona going on this Thanksgiving Week. A few are the weekend before Thanksgiving and a couple are after Thanksgiving. I’ve listed them all by date and then alphabetically. Take a look at the list and find one in a city near you or go experience a new city.

Have fun!

Talking Turkey at Thanksgiving©

For several weeks, there was a family of wild turkeys living in my neighborhood, and then suddenly, they disappeared. My thought is, they realized Thanksgiving is coming soon, so they flew the coop.
