Despite Temps, Turkey Trot Draws Thousands

Cold temperatures didn't stop runners from participating in a popular Thanksgiving event in Traverse City.

The sixth annual Turkey Trot took place Thursday morning.

The 5K and 5 mile runs started and finished at Thirlby Field Stadium.

Thousands of people of all ages participated in the event and many wore their favorite turkey gear for the race. They also wore winter apparel to keep warm in the cool weather.

All of today's proceeds go to area charities.
