BROOKLYN - Thousands of people worked up an appetite for the Thanksgiving feast today by participating in the annual Turkey Trot at Prospect Park.

Some 2,000 people, as well as some four-legged runners, took part in the 5K race. Mike Ring, of the Prospect Park Track Club, says more people pre-registered for the event this year then ever before.

Organizers of the run say around $7,000 is donated to the track team of Bishop Ford High School.

"It helps us become a better program," says Jonathan Pineiro, the captain of the Bishop Ford High School track team.

Fitting for the holiday, the first three runners who crossed the finish line won a pie.
