Turkey on the Run!

Posted: Updated:

Black Friday isn't the only event that has people sprinting.

A record of 791 runners showed up for the 10th Annual Turkey Trot Thursday morning. A few runners dressed up for the occasion including the Kack family. They were wearing turkey hats while sprinting towards the finish line.

"This is the first year, the inaugural year of the hat," runner Dick Kack said. "We thought it'd be festive."

Runners from not just the state, but across the nation participated in this event.

Throughout the morning some sprinted, others wobbled. But many can agree that it's a great way to kick off Thanksgiving.

It even gets the blood flowing for Black Friday because some stores will be opening their doors Thanksgiving evening.

"You gotta run in there," said volunteer Greg Money. "A lot of people can get hurt."

As many shoppers know, when sprinting towards items on Black Friday, the fastest runner gets the goods.

"You're burning calories, saving money, it can't get better than that," Money said.
