The ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and will take place Thanksgiving Day, November 26. Austin’s beloved Thanksgiving tradition has raised $2.5 million for Caritas of Austin, which helps people move out of poverty toward self-sufficiency.

The ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot is a five-mile run, one-mile walk and a Kids K, beginning and ending at the Long Center for the Performing Arts. Register online here. All registrations include a T-shirt, runner’s guide, and donation to Caritas.

 

In its 25 years, the Trot has grown from 600 runners in 1991, to the second largest Thanksgiving Day run in Texas with more than 20,000 participants from 49 states in 2014.

 

Awards will be given to the overall first-place, second-place, and third-place male and female runners, as well as the top three men and women in each age group. Awards will also be given to the first place team and the top three finishers in the following categories: Maternity, Baby Jogger, Wheelchair, Longhorn, Red Raider, and Team Challenge. Participants who want to raise additional money for Caritas of Austin can partake in the Trot’s fundraising challenge for individuals or teams.

 

First Texas Honda is donating a brand new Honda Accord EX-L as the grand prize for the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot Raffle, with 100 percent of ticket sales going to Caritas. Raffle entrants will also have the chance to win eight gift packages from Mellow Johnny’s with a value totaling $1,250.

 

Anyone can buy raffle tickets, whether or not participating in the Trot, and ticket-holders do not have to be present to win. Tickets are $25 each or five for $100. Raffle tickets can be purchased online at www.thundercloud.com, at packet pickup before the run, or through an authorized employee or agent of Caritas of Austin at the organization’s headquarters, 611 Neches Street. Winners will be announced on event day at 10:45 a.m.
