BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Faster than a 5-minute mile, spots are quickly filling-up for the 124th Annual YMCA Turkey Trot.

As of Thursday, fewer than 700 places remained for the popular Thanksgiving Day event (Thursday, November 28), and the race is expected to reach capacity this week.

The Turkey Trot is an 8k (roughly 5 mile) footrace which begins on Delaware Avenue, and continues into downtown Buffalo. To sign-up, click here.
