SALT LAKE CITY - Dressing up like a turkey or a pilgrim and running 10 kilometers is exactly what many folks in Salt Lake City have planned for Thanksgiving Day.

Nearly 5,000 people are registered for the Utah Food Bank's eighth annual Utah Human Race. Participants are encouraged to wear costumes with Thanksgiving themes for the 5- and 10-kilometer runs.

Ginette Bott, chief development officer for the food bank, said the event attracts serious runners and families having a good time.

"You'll see everything from the 10-k runner who's very competitive to the mom and the stroller with the baby and the family in tow."

The race course winds through the residential area behind the Draper Outlet Mall.

Bott said the event raises tens of thousands of dollars to help feed people statewide.

"For us, it is important," she said, "because the Utah Food Bank is responsible for emergency food assistance throughout the entire state of Utah."

Registration for the Utah Human Race closes today and must be done in person at the Utah Food Bank, 3150 S. 900 West in Salt Lake City. Cost is $25 per person for the 5-k and $35 for the 10-k. The 10-k run starts at 7:30 a.m. and the 5-k starts at 8 a.m.
