Registration closed Tuesday for the the 116th annual Turkey Trot, the annual Thanksgiving morning foot race, from the YMCA on Delaware Avenue to the Buffalo Convention Center.
YMCA officials say 13,200 people have signed up for the race. Proceeds benefit programs at the YMCA. It is the longest continuously held road race in the country.
