BUFFALO, N.Y. (WBEN) – Organizers for the annual YMCA Turkey Trot in Buffalo announced this year’s event will be held virtually.

Organizers made the decision to modify the race due to ongoing concerns about coronavirus and because their registration for the event is September 8. Hicks said it was important to let people know what their plan was before they registered.

In addition to a virtual event, the YMCA is trying to include non-runners by encouraging them to share a photo of their Thanksgiving turkey or their favorite side dish. The winner of the photo contest will win a prize.
