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 Essentials:

* {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)
