Thousands Turn Out for Annual Sparks Turkey Trot

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of people came out to the Legends at Sparks Marina to burn some calories before eating their Thanksgiving meal.

"Good job hustle! All the way through!"

More than 2,400 people ran either a two mile or a 10k at the 14th annual Scheels Turkey Trot.

Organizers said a lot of families helped boost the turnout significantly from last year.

"It's a great family event, it's grown over the years and more families are coming, we have a lot of new people this year," says race director Tanja Ramociotti.

About 600 more people came for this year's Turkey Trot compared to last year's.

The money from the entry fees go toward helping "Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful" with local projects.
