If you've done one of these popular races, then you know all about the wacky dress-up options, but for newbies, trust us when we say running in holiday garb is an experience you don't want to miss.
There are so many creative options, from pie to yams to really fast pilgrims who certainly could've outrun diphtheria. And if you really feel like sticking to tradition, you can join the thousands of turkeys who run as, well, turkeys year after year.
Thanks to Pinterest, we've found tons of inspiration. Here are our favorites--ranked from okay to very best.
Turkey1 of 11
Turkeys are not known to be particularly speedy, and the aerodynamics of this look might not get you to a PR, but man, attaching a tail feather to a backpack is just gravy.
Pumpkin Pie2 of 11
Delicious and adorable, this gourd enthusiast gets major creativity points. She even added whipped cream!
Another Turkey3 of 11
Turkeys might be the most obvious option, but what this getup lacks in creativity, it makes up for in design. Brilliant use of brown clothing.
Coordinating Turkey Outfits4 of 11
If you want to get roasted, we mean race, with your friends, this is the costume for you. We give them two feathers up (even though they are still turkeys).
Another Dang Turkey5 of 11
The feathers on this one deserve some attention.
Cutest Little Sweet Potato6 of 11
Okay c'mon, how adorable is this sweet potato ? For parents pushing strollers or tugging younger ones along the course, this costume is for your little tikes.
Pilgrim7 of 11
We give this woman a 10 out of 10 for her running-friendly pilgrim outfit with the running skirt, and warm base layer. She thought of everything!
A Hand Turkey? C'mon.8 of 11
This is like taking the least original costume concept and asking a kindergartener to design it. We love it.
The Cooks and Their Turkey9 of 11
We like that these cooks have prepped their friend for its ultimate demise.

Possibly the best representation of Thanksgiving we've seen.
