Hard to believe that once upon a time in Los Angeles, there was no Turkey Trot — but they’re up to the 7th Annual Turkey Trot by now, and what better way to pump yourself up for the holiday than by running the mean streets of Los Angeles? Organizers are hard at work trying to raise $50,000 for The Midnight Mission, and whether you sprint, walk or just hobble your way across that finish line, you’ll know that your efforts today will at least give someone something to be thankful for — even if you were a real rat bastard this year!

Los Angeles City Hall, 200 N. Spring St., downtown; Thu., Nov. 28, 8 a.m.; $49-74. (310) 821-7898, turkeytrot.la.
