The tradition continued Thursday morning when hundreds of runners and walkers gathered for the 17th time to hit the streets of Watertown during the Donohue’s Bar & Grill Turkey Trot.
The proceeds from the 5K run and walk run and walk go to the Watertown Boys & Girls Club.
The race drew a large crowd on a sunny but crisp Thanksgiving morning when temperatures hovered around freezing.
The winner was Ben Weingart, who finished the Turkey Trot in 16 minutes 31 seconds. The fastest female finisher was Grace Eysenbach, who ran the course in 19:28.
Young athletes also got into the action, running around the block for the kids race.
Officially, 790 people participated in the Turkey Trot, and even more registered for the race.
