PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - An annual Thanksgiving tradition is returning.

The Parkersburg Turkey Trot is returning for its 44th year.

Runners will get the chance to take part in the event this Thanksgiving starting at nine in the morning.

The event’s director, Sharon Marks says that this event is expecting more people to return to take part in it.

Which Marks says is a huge change from the last two years when COVID-19 kept many from participating.

“It’s nice to see the community to come together and support the race and the Turkey Trot. And the River City Runners. This is our big event for the year. And we appreciate everyone coming out and supporting us,” says Marks.

The Turkey Trot still has applications available for people to register.
