People of all ages got their Thanksgiving Day off right with a run, walk or jog during the 13th Annual Hopewell 5K Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot.

The morning of Thanksgiving people participated in the 5K Cross Country Course at Rosedale Park in Pennington dressed in running gear and some in turkey costumes or Thanksgiving decorations on Nov. 23.
