DULUTH, MN -- Hundreds of runners turned out for Duluth’s annual “Gobble Gallop” race Thanksgiving morning.

Duluth Running Company has hosted the event for the past 17 years.

It includes a 5K run, a one-mile “Turkey Trot,” and a shorter kids race.

The course takes runners along Superior Street through downtown Duluth before they turn around at 5th Ave. W. and loop back to the finish line.

One family said it’s become a special holiday tradition.

“It’s good,” Hailey and Sydney Cummins said. “It’s fun to see the atmosphere and everybody getting together, I especially love the costumes everyone wears.”
