There's no better family tradition than to kick off Thanksgiving morning with a scenic trot down beautiful Ward Parkway at the Ward Parkway Thanksgiving Day Walk/Run (...plus it doesn't hurt to make extra room for that 2nd slice of pie). Speaking of dessert, each participant gets both a long sleeve race shirt AND a 6 inch pumpkin pie!
