A day off from school usually means sleeping in and enjoying the time off, especially on Thanksgiving. But, for thousands in Fairfield County, Thanksgiving morning means one thing: The Turkey Trot.
The annual Pequot Runners Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot 5 mile road race took place on Nov. 22 in Southport, Connecticut at 8:15 a.m. Runners began near the Pequot Library in Southport and finished at the Wakeman Boys and Girls club. There was also a walking route that was 2.6 miles.
