On Thanksgiving Day, thousands of runners gathered in Bethesda to run the Turkey Chase. The event supports the YMCA's Youth and Family Services, YMCA Bethesda-Chevy Chase and the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rotary Club foundation.
Participants ran in a 10K race and families joined in with a 2 mile fun run/walk.
This year, according to the preliminary results, Samuel Luff of Rockville won the 10K race with a time of 31 minutes and 32 seconds. Piotr Dybas of Richmond, Va. and Christopher Sloane of Rockville came in second and third.
