Trax4Max is the one time a year I willingly lace up my running shoes. The course goes through Downtown Florence, including the beautiful campus at the University of North Alabama, and all proceeds benefit the YMCA of the Shoals. Come dressed in a Thanksgiving costume—you might just win a prize.

5. “Run It Off” Fun Run
