Many of us eat to our heart’s content on Thanksgiving and there are those that like to incorporate some exercise into their day. Some towns have made walks or “turkey trots” a part of their Thanksgiving traditions. This year there are three such events taking place in Horry County. Below is a list of 5K events taking place and then a list of restaurants serving up Thanksgiving meals along the strand. Participate in one of these walks or simply go for a walk on the beach with the family and then get your gobble on!
