The 2014 3rd Annual Gardendale Turkey Trot raised money for Firehouse Shelter and was supported by a number of local businesses and organizations, including: Run Gardendale, Buffalo Wild Wings in Gardendale, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Mordecai Sports, and Alabama Power.
Participation in the event has grown significantly each year, starting with about thirty folks in its inaugural running in 2012, and growing to more than 90 runners in 2013 (gallery). This third edition of the Gardendale Turkey Trot saw more than 115 registered runners, with dozens of others who showed up on race day.
This was my first occasion not to run in the event, which was disappointing but allowed me to thoroughly photograph the run and most of its participants.
The photographs can also be seen at the gallery: 2014 3rd Annual Gardendale Turkey Trot

This same spider was photographed earlier in the summer, here.
