Running: 482 runners get Leg up on Thanksgiving
WILLMAR — On Thanksgiving 482 runners, plus walkers, got up early to do the Turkey Leg 5k, a 3.1 mile run on the southeast city streets.
With the temp at 22 degrees for the 8 a.m. start at the YWCA, participants easily earned a second helping of mashed potatoes and stuffing later in the day.
The numbers were down slightly from the record 522 finishers in 2012. This was the final race in the Glacial Lakes Championship Running Series for 2013.
