Runners flock to Alliant Energy Center for Turkey Trot

MADISON, Wis. — Madison’s annual Turkey Trot returned for its eighth year Thursday.

The Thanksgiving tradition saw about 2,400 runners flock to the Alliant Energy Center. Finishers received a medal and a donut, courtesy of Greenbush Bakery.

“[It’s] just a good way to get out and exercise before having a great Thanksgiving dinner,” runner Morgan Matz said.

The event raised funds for UCP of Greater Dane County, which helps people who are living with disabilities.
