CINCINNATI — If you're worried about overeating or ruining your diet on Thanksgiving, have no fear, you and your family and friends can still register for the 110th annual Thanksgiving Day Race.

There are about 9,000 people registered to run the race so far. In 2017, 13,000 runners participated.

The race is one of the oldest in the country, but the 10k is not as competitive as other major races.

"The Thanksgiving Day Race is all about coming together," said Julie Isphording, Thanksgiving Day Race director. "It's about getting together on a starting line and really enjoying some time together... with your neighbors, old college friends, your children, your aunts and uncles."

Beyond the early workout and coming together with family and friends, the race also benefits a number of charities, including Goodwill, Keep Cincinnati Beautiful and the Ronald McDonald House.

Goodwill will also be at the race on race day collecting donations.

The race begins at 9 a.m. on Thursday, but the Pepto Kids Fun Run starts at 8:30 a.m. outside of Paul Brown Stadium. You can register for the race here.
