The Turkey Day Run & Gobble Wobble run took place on Thanksgiving at at 9 a.m., this year attracting almost 5,000 runners -- the most there has ever been.

There were several new features to this years race including awards for top jogger stroller finishers and for best costume -- and there were certainly some fun costumes!

See the video for highlights of the race.

The Turkey Day Run’s mission is to raise money for local charities. Each year, a portion of the proceeds from the run are donated to non-profit organizations in the Charleston area.
