Thanksgiving Running Costume Guide

November 7, 2016 by The Girls

Just because you’re a runner, doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun, wearing costumes for running. Some of our favorite races are perfect for running in costume, in fact – many of them actually encourage it… especially the traditional Turkey Trot.


Are you planning on starting your Thanksgiving “right” by running a “turkey trot” before you gobble down your Thanksgiving feast? Trying to find (or make) your very own costumes for a Thanksgiving running costume? Luckily we have an idea or two that will be perfect for every turkey trot.

Pilgrim Running Costume


Want to honor the participants of the very first Thanksgiving? Why not run your turkey trot dressed as a pilgrim? Here’s everything you’ll need…

Pilgrim Running Costume Essentials:

* {one} white Sparkle Headsweats Visor
* {one} black tank top (make a “pilgrim” collar out of felt & attach to your tank)
* {one} pair of midnight black Sparkle Sleeves (make a white “cuff” out of lace or felt, and attach to your sleeves using safety pins)
* {one} midnight black sparkle running skirt (a child’s apron is perfect for a pilgrim running costume – if it’s longer than you’d like, cut/sew it shorter)
* {one} pair of black & white stripe race legs
* {one} pair of silver wing shoe Shwings
* optional: black running shoes
