Before you dig into your Thanksgiving meal, join the San Antonio Food Bank for a chip-timed 5K run/walk on Thanksgiving morning. The annual Great Turkey Challenge helps fight hunger in the community; every $15 generated by the race provides a turkey dinner to a family in need.
The race starts on Thursday, Nov. 24, at the Commander’s House on South Flores Street. The event has something for runners and walkers of all abilities, including a morning stroll for the casual competitors, a chip-timed race for the more competitive runners, and even a pet-friendly activity. Plus, the Great Turkey Challenge is one of the only races allowed to run through the King William district.
Event check-in starts at 6:30 a.m. on Nov. 24; the 5K race begins at 8:30 a.m. For more information, visit www.safoodbank.org/thegreatturkeychallenge.
