Turkey Trot at Woodward Park in Fresno

FRESNO, Calif.

Nearly 2,000 runners and walkers braved the freezing temperatures for an 8 a.m. start time at Woodward Park.

The runners tackled a 5k course and the walkers did a 2 mile walk.

Some participants donned crazy costumes to get into the holiday spirit including pilgrims and Native Americans, an enormous Gumby and a tortoise and a hare.

The run benefits needy Fresno families with thanksgiving baskets and Buchanan and Clovis West's cross country teams.

Organizers say Thursday's turnout was impressive especially considering the cold weather.
