All About Cedar Park’s Thanksgiving Day 5K

So what’s in your plans for Thursday, November 23 – also known as Thanksgiving? Well, sure, there’s the Turkey Dinner but that’s not until later in the afternoon. What are you doing that morning? You might be interested in the Cedar Park Thanksgiving Day 5K marathon is all.

Located at 200 Gupton Way Drive in Cedar Park (obviously!), there are five events you can participate in. All of them are in the morning so you’ll be home for Turkey with time to spare – and think how great it’ll be that you’ve earned every single bite of Turkey, Mash Potatoes, Mac & Cheese and everything else piled on to your dinner table.

The entire family is welcome and packet pickup is on the Wednesday, Nov 22nd from 1pm-6pm in the community rooms at the Cedar Park Recreation Center. So what are the events happening at the Cedar Park Thanksgiving Day 5K? We thought you’d never ask.

There are five separate events in total. The Timed Turkey begins at 9am (and runs, pun intended, until 11am). Tickets are $30. Then there’s the Timed Hunter, a race that starts at 10:15am and goes until 11am. Tickets for this are also $30. For $28, you can choose the Untimed Turkey which goes from 9am-11am and for the same price you can choose the Untimed Hunter which also runs from 9am-11am. If the kids are interested in participating, then there’s the Kids K, for $15, which runs from 10:15am-11am.

At the end of the day, all proceeds are going directly to charity and this year, the Cedar Park Blue Santa program is set to benefit – or, more specifically, kids are as they want your unwrapped toys and donations. They’re trying to achieve a total of one thousand dollars and, at the time of writing, are currently at $305 so even if you don’t want to run, please click here and make a donation in any amount. You’ll be making the holidays for people who are suffering – and that’s what the holidays are truly all about.

Have a great Thanksgiving!
