Burn those thighs before those pies!

Join your fellow pilgrims on Thanksgiving Day morning for a one mile fun run and a 5K run/walk in downtown Waco! We have even added a  last minute "Side Dish" option for your last minute, more reluctant buddy that doesn't want to pay full price (and maybe doesn't want to get off the couch??) 

And if you think just a fun run, think again! This year we are honored to donate to a very important local organization for which we are extremely thankful, the Community Cancer Association. Learn more about them at

The 1K is a fun run so just that... FUN!

The 5K is a professionally timed event with awards for overall male and female, masters male and female, as well as age group awards! Even better, there is an award for the best Thanksgiving related costume! So dress your best and strut your Poultry In Motion Stuff!

Shirts are ordered on November 15th; you must be registered by then to be guaranteed your shirt and size. Yes, we order extras, but they will be distributed based on date and time of registration.... this is good news - you don't have to run fast, you just have to register fast!

Race Day Registration will be available but does come with an "inconvenience fee" $5 by registering prior to race day and use it for some cranberry sauce!

On that note, finisher medals take 6 weeks to make so they will be distributed to the first 1000 registrants; if those people do not show up on race day, they will be distributed based on your date of registration.
