Nearly 1,300 trotters braved the elements for Hopelink’s 16th Annual Turkey Trot 5K Family Fun Run and Walk on November 20. The scenic course follows Lake Washington from Kirkland’s Marina Park to Carillon Point and back; raising funds to support local families during the challenging winter months. Although the Hopelink Turkey Trot isn’t a timed event, that didn’t stop a few serious runners from kicking into gear: Teddy Pierce (bib #895) was the first male finisher, and Kelsi Wustebarth (bib #1204) finished first among the women.
