The 2022 Turkey Trot couldn’t have been any more perfect. Photographer Glenn Murray was on hand to capture the magic, on a balmy winter’s day, not longer after Buffalo’s initial significant snowfall. The collective mood was cheerful, and boisterous. Runners appeared to be enjoying some fun in the sun, as they passed plenty of water, beer, and Bloody Mary stations. This is the race that officially signals the arrival of the holidays.
This year’s Turkey Trot attracted around 12,000 runners. It is highly anticipated, not only due to the party atmosphere that surrounds it, but because many of the runners are joined by friends, family, and out-of-towners who return to Buffalo for Thanksgiving – hence many of the costumed characters dressed in turkey-attire.
Thanks to Glenn for capturing the spirit of the 127th YMCA Turkey Trot.
