42 Turkey Trot Instagram Captions

For runners, walkers, and watchers alike.

There are really only two reasons to wake up early on Thanksgiving Day: to baste your bird or run in a turkey trot. The people who do both are absolutely top-tier in my book, but by most standards, running any sort of race is a big accomplishment. Whether you’re a loud and proud participant or a wine-sipping spectator, these Turkey Trot Instagram captions are the perfect way to celebrate the event.

Perhaps the only way to convince someone like me to attend a Turkey Trot Thanksgiving race on a bitter cold November morning (let alone run in one) is the promise of pumpkin pie and people dressed head-to-toe in turkey costumes while they run. Plus, what better way is there than a turkey trot to get your steps in prior to your Thanksgiving feast? These Instagram captions for Turkey Trots capture all of the fun and festivities that this seasonal race has to offer.
