Runners lace up for annual Houston Turkey Trot event
Over 15,000 people expected to participate
HOUSTON – Thanksgiving is a time to gather with friends and family. But for thousands of Houstonians, it’s also a time to lace up their running shoes for a good cause.
The 2016 TXU Energy Houston Turkey Trot will kick off Thanksgiving morning in the Galleria area to raise money for neighborhood centers.
A wide array of races is being offered, including both competitive and non-competitive, wheelchair races and a kids’ run.
