Races: Thanksgiving Day runs make the pie that much sweeter
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2009, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Thanksgiving Day isn't a holiday for runners judging from the number of organized races taking place along the Wasatch Front.

The first five races listed below are part of a fundraiser for the Huntsman Cancer Foundation, in which participants are asked to raise either $60 or $200. Fundraising deadline for those races is Nov. 20.

The other events raise funds for other organizations or simply use exercise to lessen the holiday's typical caloric OD.
