Like the 2011 FishHawk Turkey Trot, this year’s annual Thanksgiving Day race is expected to draw a crowded field.

The FishHawk Turkey Trot expects to draw more than 1,400 people on Thanksgiving morning.

The 5K race begins at 8 a.m. in the Publix parking lot, 5642 FishHawk Crossing Blvd., and it's followed by the kids fun run at 9 a.m.

Founder and race director Leda Eaton credits the race, now in its fourth year, with leading to the creation of the Seeds of Hope Community Food Bank, which distributes food weekly. She also says the event is a great way to start the holiday weekend.

"There's no other race that says 'family fun' like our FishHawk Turkey Trot. There is a spirit around the turkey trot that permeates everything we do. Everyone comes and leaves smiling and with all the proceeds going to our local food bank, it's a perfect fit for a Thanksgiving Day cause we can all support."

To register and get information on the race, go to fishhawkturkeytrot.com.
