Turkey Trot Set to Kick off Thursday Morning

Posted: Updated:

"Snow or shine," Shinnston's 5th annual Turkey Trot is set for Thursday morning.

Organizers came out to Jimmy's Diner on Wednesday to give runners the opportunity for any last-minute registrations.

Hundreds of people are already signed up for the race, which benefits the Marie Gaston scholarship for Harrison County 4-H.

"We created a family-like atmosphere, it's like a little festival for just one day. And I think people see that, and I think it's working, and that's what's bringing people back and growing," said Jason Talkington, who organized the event, along with his wife.

Registration begins at 7:30 Thursday morning, and the race kicks off at 9 a.m.
