Sweet 16 for Modesto’s Turkey Trot

Fans of autumn exercise gobbled up the goofy fun of the 16th annual Modesto Turkey Trot and Gobbler Walk Thanksgiving morning. The Modesto Junior College Cross Country Team organized the run in Modesto’s Tuolumne River Regional Park. A half-mile boys race kicked off the festivities at 8:45 a.m., followed by a half mile girls race, with all the young contestants taking home a medal. A 5-kilometer run followed with walkers bringing up the rear. Awards went to the top three male and female contenders in eight divisions. The slightly over three-mile path followed a scenic, mostly paved path along the Tuolumne bank, passing through the old oak groves in the park.
