Runners begin Thanksgiving with 45th Richmond Road …
RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Runners laced up their shoes in Bryan Park on Thursday morning for the 45th Richmond Road Runners Club Turkey Trot.
Each year, racers from all over Virginia, including Roanoke, Midlothian and Washington, D.C., begin their holiday by running 6.2 miles. The Richmond Road Runners Club Turkey Trot consists of two races — a kids run and a 10K. It’s a way for families to gather together before the big meal.
Six year-old Thomas Gray-Perkins has never raced in the Richmond Road Runners Club Turkey Trot’s kids run before. Today, he joined about a hundred other children for the mile and a half race, with one goal.
