There are more running races across the U.S. on Thanksgiving day than there are any other day of the year.

Coffee Mate is offering people $5,000 not to run in traditional U.S. Thanksgiving morning 5K races.

“Here at Coffee mate, we know better than anyone that the morning coffee routine is not only personal, it’s sacred. 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 honour our fans’ individual coffee routines, whatever the perfect morning cup looks like to them.”
