Following two years of light rain and two years of pandemic precautions, this year’s YMCA Turkey Trot brought out over 1423 to brave the Brisk temperatures to compete in this year’s run.
Runners lined up starting at 6 am, and most were stretching and moving around to the DJ Ron Crume playing tunes like Y.M.C.A. and others. John Burroughs Choir members sang the National Anthem and runners got into place at the starting line at Third and Magnolia, Burbank Fire Department Engine 11 sounded its horn, and the runners were off.
