Directions to Start


Free Parking

50,000 Free parking spots in the stadium parking lots for you, your friends and your family. Bring everyone.

The Perfect Tag Timing

The tag is a tiny device attached to your shoelace to record your net time. It doesn't matter if you start at the back of the pack, walk the race, or get squished at the start. The tag will start your official time when you cross the computer pads at the starting line, and stop when you cross the finish line. Your results will be online.

Volunteer Opportunities

If you can't run or walk, how about volunteering? It's so much fun. There's registration, water stations, party set-up and finish line marshals and more. Contact us at thanksgivingdayrace.com/contact-us.html
