Kids Run in Turkey Trot for Thanksgiving Turkeys

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA. -- A Turkey Trot in Yakima Saturday awarded racers with Thanksgiving turkeys but it might not be the type of runner you expected.

Kids from Cottonwood and Nob Hill Middle Schools competed at the Inaugural Turkey Trot competition. Along with the races there was a food drive for the needy this Holiday Season. The kids were excited for the race and some said this is their first race ever.

"The Turkey Trot is really fun for me because this is my very first race with a bunch of people," 2nd grade racer Natalie said. "I feel very proud of myself."

Over three hundred children participated in the races. The middle school with the most runners won a trophy.
