2013 Prospect Park Turkey Trot - Race Results

Cold, windy weather couldn't keep hardy souls from coming out to Prospect Park early on Thanksgiving morning to take part in the annual turkey trot. More than 2,200 runners finished this year, marking another advance sellout for the event. (See the 2013 Prospect Park turkey trot results.)

In fact, the five-mile race, put on the the Prospect Park Track Club and sponsored by JackRabbit Sports, sold out two weeks before the event. Brooklyn has become the home of a number of new races in recent years, but the Prospect Park turkey trot remains one of the most popular. Despite the weather, who can pass up the chance to burn off some calories and mingle with friends old and new before sitting down to a day of coma-inducing eating and TV viewing?

If you live in Brooklyn and are looking for some folks to run with, look into becoming a member of the Prospect Park Track Club.

Congrats to all who took part and got their Thanksgiving off to a healthy start (no matter what they may have done afterward).
