MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Local 10 sports director Will Manso was among the throng of runners taking part in Thursday's annual Turkey Trot at Tropical Park.
More than 5,500 people took part in the decades-old Thanksgiving tradition.
Family and friends of all ages participated in either a 5k or 10K race. There was also a shortened trot for children.
Perla Terzian, who participated in this year's Turkey Trot, said her motivation is to stay fit and keep up with her kids.
"It's a good way to start the holidays healthier," she added.
Manso said it's a great way to spend time with his family.
“This is my first Turkey Trot, but we try to run as much as we can, but to run it as a family, it’s kind of a cool thing,” he said.
