The results are in from this year’s Tamarac Turkey Trot, with turnout reaching an all-time high with 2,155 runners participating in the race. This exceeded the previous record by 140.
Parks and Recreation Director Greg Warner said this year’s race was exceptional.
“It’s truly gratifying that so many individuals and families make the Tamarac Turkey Trot part of their Thanksgiving tradition. This year’s turnout speaks volumes about the effort city staff puts into making this a quality event that brings people into the Tamarac community.
The Parks and Recreation Foundation of Tamarac, which provides summer camps for children, raised some much-needed funds with $831 in donations.
