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.NEWS BY LOCATION | ABC30 BLOGS | DISCUSSION FORUMS
