The 36th annual Turkey Chase helps raise money for charity along with making room for your Thanksgiving feast!

The run is organized by the Corpus Christi Roadrunners and the Coastal Bend Running Club, and it helps promote a healthy lifestyle while giving back to the community. Runners picked up their packets Wednesday at Twisted Murphy's downtown.

The race kicks off at 7 a.m. Thursday behind Heritage Park. For more information, visit
