A large number of participants did not mind starting their Thanksgiving morning with some exercise as they took part in the Eastern Missouri Family YMCA First Annual Turkey Trot.
More than 40 participants entered the race last Thursday. It featured runners, walkers, and bikers, which included children and babies.
Those winning awards included: Kylie Epperson and Vanessa Gibson tied for overall female first place in the ages 19-40 female category. Spencer Trower placed first in the ages 19-40 male category; Dan Heim placed first in the over age 40 male category; Susan Farrell took first for over age 40 female; Avery Rost was first in the ages 0-18 female; and Dustin Davies was the overall male first place winner for ages 0-18 male.
