27th annual Southpark Turkey Trot

The 27th annual Southpark Turkey Trot took place Thursday.

Race Director Neil Howard has been involved in this tradition for nearly a dozen years and said no matter a runner's skill level, there's a race for you.

Runners wore fun head gear, family coordinated garb or not much at all.

Some runners had on their Panthers gear for the big game against the Dallas Cowboys.

The main reason everyone woke up early and battled the cold was to make some extra room for that turkey and stuffing.
