Prospect Park Turkey Trot boasts banner year


Almost 2,000 people registered for today's Turkey Trot in Prospect Park, proving that everyone gets along better at Thanksgiving after a workout.

Turkey Trot Prospect ParkThis morning’s Turkey Trot in Prospect Park turned out almost 2,000 registrants for the annual 5-miler, according to Jack Rabbit staffer, a banner year for the run. (Though she wasn’t sure exactly how many ran last year, there were 1,290 runners in 2008.)

Returning runners to the Prospect Park Track Club event felt the presence of more company on the course—but no one seemed cranky about it, says Tif Wolf, whose regular route includes the park loop. “Except maybe the cyclists that we displaced.”

The first 1,500 runners to finish got Turkey Trot medals, and this year participants got branded arm warmers instead of T-shirts. Will it inspire a trend among non-elite runners? We’ll keep our eye on the park this winter.
