Are you looking to get in a run or walk before you fully enjoy your Thanksgiving meal? The Turkey Trot is a Thanksgiving tradition many families look forward to doing together. This year several of our area Turkey Trots have gone virtual, while a few are in person with COVID guidelines in place. Whatever route you choose, have fun and remember many of these events support local organizations.
