If you’ve spent the last few days stuffing your face (which is pretty much the point of Thanksgiving, after the gratitude part), you just may want both a break from family and shopping and a chance to run off some of those calories. Why not join NYC Runs for its Riverside Park Hot Chocolate 5K or 10K, which loops around the park? Sure, awards will be given to the top male and female runners, but the real reward will be getting in an outdoor run before the weather gets too chilly. You’ll also get a free hot chocolate mug and get to snack on hot chocolate, bagels and fresh fruit after the run.
Riverside Park, 108th Street and Riverside Drive, 9 a.m. (pick0up starts at 8 a.m.), $30 until Nov. 28, $40 thereafter, firstname.lastname@example.org
