EUREKA- Runners took to the streets in Old Town on Thursday for the 12th Annual Eureka Turkey Trot.
 “I came out and wanted to go for a little run this morning so I could feel better about eating a bunch of food,” said participant Justin Leddon.

Approximately 1,000 people came out for the run, which started and ended at Eureka’s Old Town gazebo. The 3.1 mile run took participants in a loop to the Carson Mansion, along the boardwalk and down to commercial street. This year’s run was dedicated to Forrest Williams who was a staple in the running community. All funds raised from the event will be donated to local running clubs and programs at area high schools, as well as College of the Redwoods and Humboldt State University.

“It kind of creates our awareness for running and you know, it's just great,” said Eureka Turkey Trot Co-Director Scott Pesch. “It's a good family affair and we just get to recognize running you know and have a good time.”
