Between the cold weather and comfort food, the holidays are one of the hardest times of the year to stay fit. But for those wanting to enjoy a “guilt free” Thanksgiving feast, starting with the ninth annual Turkey Trot might help. On November 8 at Dexter‘s Hudson Mills Metropark, the trot will kick off with a 5K race at 9am, followed by a 10K race at 10 am. For younger trotters, a one-mile kids fun run begins at 11 am, and for experienced Iron Turkey trotters, participants will begin the 5K at 9 am and continue in the 10K.

$30 for 5k and 10k; $15 for kid’s mile. Hudson Mills Metropark, 8801 N. Territorial Rd., Dexter. a2turkeytrot.com
