1st time Turkey Runners
Another Quincy tradition is now in the books.
The 39th annual Quincy Family YMCA Turkey Run was held Thanksgiving morning in Quincy.
About 2800 runners, walkers, and swimmers showed up at 8:00 in the morning for a 1 mile fun run, 5-K walk or run, or a 10-K run.
When the race was started, about 25 runners showed up.
This year, we spoke to some folks who are new to the Turkey Run.
"I've been meaning to do a 5K for awhile now, so seeing as she wanted to do one, so I might as well," said Haman Leung
"I just dragged him along to it," said Makenzie Embry
"I started running back in the summer, and the Turkey Run always seemed like a really fun thing to do, so I made it a big family affair. The whole fam is here," said Sydney Luttrull.
All the money raised from the Turkey Run benefits a financial assistance program for the Quincy Family YMCA.
KHQA is a proud sponsor of this event.
