Conducted by the Oxford Township Parks and Recreation Department, the annual event consists of folks either running a 5-kilometer course or walking a 2-kilometer route.

First place finishers in each age category received a frozen turkey, compliments of the Oxford Meijer.

A total of 21 birds were given away this year. The only thing colder than the turkeys were the participants and spectators.
