IN PICTURES: Pies, ribbons and crowds of costumed runners at the annual Turkey Trot

Some people squeezed in a little exercise before the mountains of mashed potatoes and gravy Thursday.

Hundreds showed up for the 16th Long Beach Turkey Trot in Belmont Shore—some wearing Turkey costumes, strap-on pies or just their trusty running shorts.

They walked or dashed through the annual 5K and 10K, and kids ran the 1/2-mile Wingding.
