6,000 Runners Flock to South Baptist Health Florida Turkey Trot

November 30, 2013

More than 6,000 participants competed at the 10K or 5K distance with kids running races ranging from 100 meters for two and three-year-olds to 600 meters for eight and nine-year-olds

 

MIAMI - Runners as young as two years old and as old as 81 converged en masse on Tropical Park in Miami Thanksgiving morning to participate in what has become an annual tradition for the fitness set -- the Baptist Health South Florida Turkey Trot presented by Publix.

 

More than 6,000 participants competed at the 10K or 5K distance with kids running races ranging from 100 meters for two and three-year-olds to 600 meters for eight and nine-year-olds.

 

The event was for both serious and recreational runners.

 

Local standouts Bryan Sharkey and Bryan Huberty battled it out in the front for the 10K crown. Sharkey finished in 32 minutes, 43 seconds and Huberty finished 40 seconds behind.  Mark Allen won the 5K race in 14:59.

 

But more than anything, the massive turnout on Thanksgiving morning was a statement that the Run Miami movement of the past several years continues to experience momentum.

 

"The Turkey Trot is growing every year," said Javier Sanchez, General Manager of the South Florida Division of US Road Sports. "People love getting up on Thanksgiving morning and having an active activity with their entire family. We had families come out with multiple generations -- parents, kids and grandparents. It's a great way to begin one of the most enjoyable days of the year for so many people."

 

This year, the Baptist Health South Florida Turkey Trot presented by Publix also partnered with Camillus House, South Florida's oldest and continually running charity, to help the poor and homeless in need of Thanksgiving meals collect canned goods from runners and their guests on race day.
