2015 ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot

Rain or Shine
Regardless of the weather the event will go on–and it’s going to be a blast!

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning, November 26, 2015. The largest five-mile run in Texas, and one of the largest Turkey Trots in the nation with more than 20,000 participants, ThunderCloud’s Trot is a cherished Thanksgiving Day tradition in Austin.

ThunderCloud has raised nearly $2.5 million for Caritas of Austin through the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot. We donate 100 percent of the proceeds of the event to Caritas, which provides education and support services to working poor people to help them become self-sufficient.

The ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot has grown exponentially in its quarter century, from 600 participants in 1991 to more than 20,000 from 49 states in 2014. Sign up with your family and friends this year to be part of this fun and healthy family tradition, and to help support our community.
