Back for 2021! Come and Run With Us Turkeys!

What better way to get your Thanksgiving Day started than with a great energy-raising run? Well, how about a Thanksgiving Day run that also supports local food pantries?

The Pfeathered Pfun Runs take place Thanksgiving Day. Choose to run either a 5K (~3 miles) or 10K (~6 miles), depending upon how hungry you want to be for dinner. For the younger runners, we also offer a Little Trotters Kids' K.

Each year since the inaugural event in 2014 (except for that year we all want to forget), this event has grown in popularity. We celebrate each finisher with medals, t-shirts and lots of pumped-up cheering! We are very excited to once again present this event again in 2021.

For those who would like to participate in the run but are not in town Thanksgiving morning, there is a virtual run option available. Same finisher medal, same t-shirt - you just do the race distance you choose on your schedule, wherever you may be.
***NOTE: Virtual runners are not eligible for awards.

Details

All participants REGISTERING PRIOR TO OCTOBER 25th will receive a long-sleeve t-shirt and finisher's medal, regardless of which run is completed. NOTE: Those registering for a virtual run, will receive their shirts and/or medals after the event.

Pfun Run Registration

This is a charitable event. A portion of the proceeds will be divided among the local food pantries involved.

Packet Pickup

Packet pickup location to be announced. We will notify all participants who have registered prior to the location being confirmed.

Depending on Covid restrictions in place at the time, we may be required to have packet pickup race morning.

For for our out-of-town participants who have notified the Race Director, packets will be available race morning at the pavilion on the north shore of Lake Pflugerville, up to 10 minutes prior to the race start.

Directions: From downtown Pflugerville, take Pecan Street (or from Highway 130, take Pflugerville Parkway) east to Weiss Lane. Turn left (north) and go just past the lake. The entrance to the parking will be on your left. (Note: Use 18216 Weiss Lane, Pflugerville, TX for your mapping on the Garmin, if needed).

Race morning, parking is available at the park. Please do NOT try to enter the cul de sac at Lake Pflugerville, as it will be closed. If the paved parking is full, you are free to park in the grass pasture, if it is dry enough to drive.

Giving Back

To truly be part of a community, we believe it is important for us to support the causes in need. With this thought in mind, proceeds of this event will support local food pantries.

To augment this opportunity to give back to the community, canned goods and non-perishables will be collected for the Pflugerville-area food pantries. Food donations will be happily accepted both at packet pickup and race morning. Donated food will be divided between the food pantries involved in this year's race. And THANKS!

If you prefer, you will also have the opportunity during your event registration (AND even race morning!) to donate cash to the effort.

NOTE: Financial donations submitted through registration and on race day will be processed through our non-profit Fiscal Sponsor, Sports 4 Us, as a tax-deductible gift, and 100% forwarded to the food pantries.

Thank you for your support!

We want to thank you all who have participated in previous Pfeathered Pfun Runs. It has been an awesome six years, with thousands of dollars donated to various local food pantries over the years, and we are extremely happy to get back to celebrating Thanksgiving with you all for our seventh year!
