Turkey Trots are one of Tampa Bay’s favorite Thanksgiving Day events. The Turkey Trots are a good, solid way for families to spend time together working off the Thanksgiving Day feast before it is consumed– and a wonderful way to show thanks by giving to others. Some families choose just one race and some try to participate in a few over the Thanksgiving Season. Tampa Bay has numerous Turkey Trots available and they are pretty much evenly located around all major cities.
