For those brave souls, the annual Turkey Trot — a 5k race hosted by the YMCA of the Roses — is right around the corner. The 26th annual Turkey Trot will kick off at 9 a.m. Nov. 24 at the York YMCA branch located at 90 N. Newberry St.

Registration will cost $30 and includes a bright pink athletic shirt.
