Turkey Trot Start turkeytrot5 (Medium) turkeytrot1 (Medium)

Fleet Feet has sponsored a 8k Turkey Trot in Lincoln Park For 33 years. Over 7,000 runners and walkers came out in their best Thanksgiving attire for this event which raises needed funds and non-perishable foods for the Greater Chicago Depository.

Later that day in Glenview, Illinois, an even longer tradition, the Turkey Bowl, continued for its 43rd year, as Eli’s Marc Schulman joined friends dating back to Old Orchard Junior High School. In full disclosure the game is now much more of a scrimmage as the worries of injury have transformed the “game” into an excuse to have lunch at Irvings for Red Hot Lovers.
