Thanksgiving doesn’t have to be all about eating.

Fit & Fun

There are plenty of eating options on Thanksgiving. I mean options to eating.

One of them is the 9th annual Seattle Turkey Trot, a 5k jog or walk Thanksgiving Day morning. It starts in Seattle’s Sunset Hill, north of Ballard, and finishes at Golden Gardens Park.

The event begins at 9 a.m. and will cost each runner about $35. Kids 10 and under can do it for $20. Proceeds go to Ballard Food Bank. For details and registration see: seattleturkeytrot.org.

There are actually many Thanksgiving runs. This running website has information on a number of them: seattleruns.com/events.aspx
