This year’s winner was Bastrop resident and mixed-media artist Rebecca. “I was on cloud nine!” Vick says of learning that her artwork was chosen.

Always held on Thanksgiving Day, the Trot includes a five-mile run, one-mile walk, and a Kids’ K that take place outside the Long Center for the Performing Arts.

Early online registration for the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot is $25 for the untimed five-mile, $30 for the timed five-mile, $20 for the one-mile walk, and $8 for the Stepping Stone School Kids’ K. All registrations include a T-shirt and runners guide. Registration prices will increase starting Nov. 7.

All proceeds from the Trot go to Caritas of Austin, a local charity that supports Austin’s working poor and homeless people. ThunderCloud has raised nearly $3 million for Caritas since the event began in 1991.
