The turkey trot is a holiday tradition celebrated by many and loathed by others. If you don’t want to don your running shoes and run a 5K this Thanksgiving, Coffee Mate has your back. The company is offering a special “$5K to Skip the 5K Sweepstakes” for those willing to take the pledge.

It’s all in the name of protecting the morning ritual of that first morning sip of java that coffee drinkers hold so dear. According to Coffee Mate, Thanksgiving’s traditional morning 5K is disrupting that for their coffee enjoyers.

“Coffee Mate knows better than anyone that the morning coffee routine is sacred, but every Thanksgiving, the dreaded turkey trot threatens to disrupt that ritual,” the sweepstakes website said. “By entering and submitting your information below, you pledge to skip the 5K run in favor of coffee and comfort this year for the chance to win $5K – courtesy of Coffee’s Perfect Holiday Mate.”

That pledge can be given at to enter for a chance to win the $5,000.


“Here at Coffee mate, we know better than anyone that the morning coffee routine is not only personal, it’s sacred,” Leonardo Aizpuru, Nestlé Senior Director of Brand Marketing and Leader of the Creamer Business Unit., said in a news release. “Every Thanksgiving, the infamous 5K run poses a potential disruption to that ritual. As coffee’s perfect holiday mate, we’re encouraging people to slow down this year and savor Thanksgiving morning – a holiday where comfort is king. This pledge is a fun way to honor our fans’ individual coffee routines, whatever the perfect morning cup looks like to them.”

The sweepstakes will end Nov. 24 at 11:59 p.m. Odds of winning the sweepstakes depend on the number of entries received, the company said.
