WILMINGTON, N.C. (WWAY)– Runners laced up this morning for a 5k race called “Gallop for the Gravy.” The race took off at the YMCA on Market Street and wrapped around Wilmington. Runners of all ages participated in the event, some running just for fun while others pushed themselves to finish first.
“I got second place,” says Clint Henry of Wilmington. “It was a good race for me. I grew up with Aaron and we ran together some growing up. So it was fun to push each other and just have fun, and talk to each other during the race.”
Henry was also accompanied today by his wife. He says it was his first turkey trot as a married man and he hopes to make it a tradition.
