1,500 Trotters turn out for Bethany Beach Turkey Trot

BETHANY BEACH, Del.- Turkey Trot organizers in Bethany Beach say a crowd of over 1,500 people came out to run the 2-mile Fun Run/Walk that started and finished on the Bethany Beach Boardwalk Bandstand, Garfield Parkway & the Boardwalk.

The event featured mascots, photo-ops, and fun for all ages, as runners went up and down the boardwalk.

Organizer and Focus Multisports CEO Rick Handley tells us he is thrilled with the turnout and their ability to support local first responders at the Bethany Beach Fire Company

“They are a volunteer organization and people can tell this area is growing and they need more money and more support, it is probably their single largest day fundraiser that we do for them,” Handley said.

Handley says tickets cost 35 dollars and up for each participant, and they will be tallying the funds next week to determine the total amount raised.
