The Pequot Runners Club annual Thanksgiving Day race is expected to attract more than 5,000 runners this year. Spectators are likely to see some runners dressed as Pilgrims for the holiday occasion. A fitness walk also is associated with the 5-mile race, which begins at 8:15 a.m. at the Wakeman Boys & Girls Club in Southport.
Runners can register online through Wednesday or on the day of the race.
There will also be a shuttle from Sherwood Island State Park for overflow parking.
