Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) This morning's colder weather may have scared off a few runners from the College of Southern Idaho's Fifth Annual "Turkey Trot."
Still, about 250 hardy souls "wrapped up warm" to brave the icy air this morning. The five kilometer run around the CSI campus was sponsored by the Triathlon Club.
Usually the runners dress up in Thanksgiving Day costumes. But the only distinctive clothing seen today was an American flag straw hat.
Scott Rogers, P.E. Instructor at CSI, says, "It's colder than last year. We had a lot more costumes, a lot more pilgrims and Indians and a couple turkeys, so that's fun. A lot of people came out in costume, a lot of dogs this year, too."
Man's best friend got some exercise along with his or her human. A couple of moms bundled up their little ones in strollers to participate in the race which was a little over three miles long. The money raised by the Turkey Trot will go toward scholarships and paying travel expenses for the CSI Triathlon Team to compete.
