UW-La Crosse hosts annual Turkey Trot

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Runners and walkers braved the winter weather for a Turkey Trot.

UW-La Crosse held its annual Turkey Trot 5K.

Event organizers said this event brings a big turnout from all over the region.

“It means so much today that we’ve seen such a good crowd come out,” said UWL Rec Sport’s Coordinator of Marketing and Events Hannah Grabow. “Last year our numbers were lower, we were coming out of Covid. This year it’s just such a boom of energy. It’s really, really fun to see participants here and having fun.”

The event also included a costume contest, a raffle and even a race for younger trotters.
