People prepare for Thanksgiving in a number of ways, but the people on 30A do it in a very different way.

Over 3,500 runners participated in the 8th annual 30A 10K race.

People of all ages flocked to Rosemary Beach for three different running events. The 10K was followed by a 1 mile fun run and later a 5K run.

More than $7,000 in prizes were offered for various finishers which included a $1,000 cash prize for the first place man and woman in the 10K category. The mild weather conditions brought out several thousand spectators to root for their favorite runners.

A very excited Race Director Karen Meadws said, "We're excited to make a big donation this year, hopefully exceeding previous years.

To date we've given $350,000 out to local charities. We're hoping to give them a very big check."

The 30A 10K race event is one of the top five ranked Thanksgiving Day races in America.
