ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot

This year, take part in Austin's favorite Thanksgiving Day tradition - from near or far!

This year marks the 33rd anniversary of the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot, benefitting Caritas of Austin’s work to end homelessness and provide people with the resources they need to thrive. Last year’s event raised $225,000 for Caritas of Austin, bringing the total raised over three decades to nearly $5 million. The run takes place on Thanksgiving Day each year, and there are plenty of ways you can get involved before you feast!

The 2023 Trot will be a hybrid event, so you can join us in-person for a five-mile run, one-mile run or walk, or a Kids K — or sign up to run in your own neighborhood, no matter where you live! REGISTER HERE.


It takes hundreds of volunteers to help Austin’s favorite Thanksgiving tradition run smoothly. By giving your time, you help make the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot possible and ensure our neighbors have a safe place to call home. You can volunteer as an individual or group at packet pick-up the week leading up to Thanksgiving Day or at the race. Gather your flock of friends, family or coworkers and SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER today!
