CHICO —  More than 4,000 gathered Thursday at One-Mile Recreation Area to trot along in the 17th annual Run for Food, a fundraiser by the Jesus Center.

Dressed in turkey hats, costumes and sponsor T-shirts, participants paraded the 5K through lower Bidwell Park.

Rick Satava, a neighbor to the park, stood by to watch the race begin and said he was glad to see people together again.

“This is pretty awesome that they have this again. Great turnout and good fundraiser,” Satava said.

Participant Chase Tracy said he’d be keeping a brisk walk moving through the whole process, and afterwards, spend Thanksgiving time with his grandmother.

“We gotta do the community first, then you zoom in a little bit, then you go spend time with your family,” Tracy said. “That’s the whole point of this thing.”

The race began at 9 a.m. and timed runners blitzed through the course so quickly that participants were still beginning at the starting line as they finished.

Zane Kowalkowski and Ariana Smedley ran together on a timed run through the park.
