November 23, 2011 - Despite a chill in the early morning air, 153 runners and walkers descended upon Seymour Lake Township Park Nov. 13 for some fun and exercise.

But most importantly, they trotted to try and win a free turkey.

The Oxford Twp. Parks and Recreation Department held their annual "Turkey Trot" on Saturday, Nov. 12. The event consists of folks either running a 5-kilometer course or walking a 2-kilometer route.

This year, runners were seperated into 11 different categories. The winners received a free 20-25 pound frozen turkey courtesy of Meijer. A total of 21 turkeys were given away this year.
