Before we start gobbling down turkey and trimmings, runners and walkers will be lacing up their shoes and hitting the streets of Cedar Rapids for a morning 5K walk/run trot. Kids ages 8 and under get a 15-minute head start for their free dash. It’s not too late to get your heart and lungs pumping. A last-minute on-site packet pick up will be held from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. at Plaza Park on the Second Avenue Bridge downtown, where the course begins and ends — and finish line cinnamon rolls await. Proceeds benefit the American Heart and Stroke associations.

Cedar Rapids Turkey Trot

9 to 10:20 a.m. Thursday (11/22), Plaza Park, Second Avenue Bridge, downtown Cedar Rapids; $30 to $50, Iowaruns.com/cedarrapidsturkeytrot
