On Thanksgiving morning 1983, Morton "Morty" Hyatt and his buddies from around the neighborhood did what they did almost every other morning: run a few miles along the side streets of Owings Mills. But Hyatt, who had just received a diagnosis of colitis, told each of his friends to bring $10 to donate to research for the intestinal disease. In return, he gave each a T-shirt with "Turkey Trot" spelled across the chest in iron-on letters, and a tradition was born. On that first morning, Hyatt's wife served bagels and cream cheese to the eight runners in the family kitchen, and the group raised $325.

Makenzie Frieman, 7, and her sister Emily, 5, waited eagerly for their mother to round the corner in the last leg of the 23rd annual Green Valley Turkey Trot yesterday morning. "Where is she?" Makenzie, craning her neck to look, asked her father. Her mother, Toni Frieman, decided to run the 5-mile race to prepare for a relay leg in next year's Baltimore Marathon. After the race, she planned to go to her Reisterstown home and start cooking Thanksgiving dinner, glad to begin the day with a good run. "The hills were a killer," Toni Frieman said, referring to the race route near Owings Mills, often too narrow for a car to squeeze past runners.
