Participating in the Hagerstown Community College Turkey Trot 5K has become almost as traditional for local runners as the turkey and stuffing they consume later Thanksgiving day. The 12th annual edition of the event Thursday morning had a record 1,370 finishers. “We're really happy with it. It's a race, but it's an event, too,” said race director Jaime Dick, who had live music and even an Elvis impersonator to help entertain the crowd. “We get so many people who say it's the only 5K they do all year.” The atmosphere was festive Thursday - and the field at the front was fast.
