The Thanksgiving "turkey trot" is an annual tradition our real estate agents love – and we're not the only ones. Plenty of area families sign up for a turkey trot each year. It's a great way to earn that extra slice of pumpkin pie! Luckily, there are plenty of options across the Richmond area.
The turkey trot is the most popular racing trend in America. In 2015, Thanksgiving became the single busiest day of the whole year to run a race, finally unseating the Fourth of July. Believe it or not, the turkey trot tradition goes all the way back to 1896.
That's right – 1896!
The first turkey trot ever took place in Buffalo, New York and was hosted by the local YMCA. While there were only six participants in that original race, today's turkey trots attract hundreds!
