Annual Turkey Trot held at Prospect Park

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.
