Photos by Stacy Fisher Stacy Fisher Staff Writer chesternews@plumasnews.com The quick (but hilly) second annual 5-K Turkey Trot Fun Run was held Thanksgiving day, Nov. 26, with the start of the paved course beginning at Bailey Creek Golf Course near the Clubhouse, then wrapping through the quiet neighborhood of Bailey Creek. In addition to those who chose to run in the family-friendly race, others preferred a more leisurely walk around the track, or pushed strollers and brought their dogs to enjoy the fresh morning air. Sponsored by Lake Almanor Area Chamber of Commerce, the run is all about having a good time, said chamber volunteer Shannon Brinkman, who co-organized the event with the help of Lynne Turner and Katie Goodwin. "The money from the registration fees and drink and cookie sales go to the chamber," Brinkman said, which is used to sponsor programs in the local area, including the Lake Almanor Fireworks show and Chester Fourth of July parade, Turkey Trot Fun Run, Mile High Bike Ride, Chili Cook-Off, Merchant's Day Safe Trick-or-Treat festivities, as well as support for local commerce and tourism. Despite some snow flurries earlier in the week, the skies were clear for the run -- although the morning event was decidedly chilly. All of the runners bundled up to brace themselves against the 17-degree temperature at the start of the footrace. A full service bar cart served warm drinks, soda and coffee, as contemporary music played from loudspeakers. A couple 0f fire pits were available for warmth before and after the race.
