Turkey Trot at Woodward Park in Fresno

Thursday, November 25, 2010

Thousands turned out for the 11th Annual Turkey Trot in northeast Fresno to try to burn off some calories before the big meal.

Nearly 2,000 runners and walkers braved the freezing temperatures for an 8 a.m. start time at Woodward Park.

The runners tackled a 5k course and the walkers did a 2 mile walk.

Some participants donned crazy costumes to get into the holiday spirit including pilgrims and Native Americans, an enormous Gumby and a tortoise and a hare.

The run benefits needy Fresno families with thanksgiving baskets and Buchanan and Clovis West's cross country teams.

Organizers say Thursday's turnout was impressive especially considering the cold weather.
