Along with the Thanksgiving feast and the football, another big tradition will resume this Thursday all across the country, including a few spots in northern Michigan.
The sixth annual Turkey Trot will be taking place in Traverse City and another race will start up this year in Petoskey.
Registration is no longer available online but you can still register for both 5K events on race day.
