The Big Finish at TQL Stadium:

Finish on the field! Once Total Quality Logistics (TQL) got wind that this year’s race finish would be at TQL stadium, they immediately jumped on board to sponsor a new, shorter race to make the Thanksgiving Day race more accessible to runners and walkers of all fitness levels. The new TQL 5k will be a little younger than the 10k—by 114 years—but just as fun for more people. You can be at the inaugural year!
