Here's a way to feel a little less bad when you're on your fourth helping of mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving...

Run Wild Missoula is hosting a Family Fun Run on Thanksgiving morning at the University of Montana. The run will consist of two races, a timed 8K and an untimed 3K. The 8K is a competitive race where the participants will run for prizes, while the 3K is noncompetitive and better for kids and families.

Here's all the info from their Facebook event page:

Join us on Thursday, November 28th and get some fresh air and exercise before feasting on a Thanksgiving meal! The Turkey Day 8K and 3K Family Fun Run courses travel along the Riverfront and Milwaukee Trails, with short distances on a few Missoula city streets.

Turkey Day 8K (timed): 8K participants receive chip timing, a winter hat, and are eligible for overall prizes.

Turkey Day 3K (untimed): 3K race is untimed & noncompetitive – perfect for kids and families * All 3K participants MUST register
