ROCHESTER, N.Y. — People got a head start to their big feast by burning some calories on the streets of Rochester on Thanksgiving.

It was the annual Feast Thanksgiving Day walk and run. People could choose to run either two or five miles. They could even do it completely virtually.

Many took advantage of the nice weather and ran from the Blue Cross Arena to the U of R campus.

“It’s a good time to spend with family before we sit down to relax and eat and just makes the day feel a lot more fun,” said runner Dan Reichman. “It’s not quite as crazy as some of the other Turkey trots in the area, which makes it a little bit more lowkey.”

Organizers even handed out pies at the end of the race, provided by Special Touch Bakery. You can see the results here.
