Run before you eat: Thanksgiving races

(WXIA) -- Thanksgiving is a week away, and with the turkey and trimmings comes another Atlanta tradition: the ATC Atlanta Half Marathon.

The 13.1-mile race begins and ends at Turner Field. Its course covers much of the city, including Atlantic Station, Piedmont Park, historic Auburn Avenue and Oakland Cemetery.

There is still time to sign up; registration is $95 at Wednesday's race expo. Get all the details here. There are also Thanksgiving Day 5K, Mashed Potato Mile and Gravy Gallop options for those who aren't ready to tackle a half.

Can't make it to Atlanta on Thanksgiving morning? There are plenty of race options in the suburbs too! Here are a few of them:

ATLANTA -- Don't be alarmed if you see a whole bunch of people running down Georgia 400 this weekend.

The Pay the Last Toll road race will be held Sunday, Nov. 17 at 8:30 a.m., and gives athletes one last opportunity to see the infamous toll booths before they are demolished.

Runners will begin at the Glenridge Connector in Sandy Springs and run south to Phipps Plaza. When they reach the toll booths, they will throw in their final 50 cents. All proceeds will go to charity.

Northbound lanes of Ga. 400 will be closed for the race from 5 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sunday.

Get more information about the race at georgiagames.org.

Georgia Department of Transportation crews will also spend part of the weekend tearing down a MARTA pedestrian bridge on southbound Ga. 400.
