FARMINGTON — The second annual Gratitude Run, staged by Running Medicine Farmington, drew more than 100 runners and walkers Thanksgiving morning to Berg Park.

Kailyn Lake, 7, takes part in a 400-meter children's race during the Gratitude Run Thursday in Berg Park in Farmington.

The event aims to promote mental, physical and spiritual health and wellness through running.

Participants could choose to run a 5-kilometer course or walk a 1-mile course. Prior to the start of the race, children participated in a 400-meter race.

Red Christmas ornaments were hidden on the running and walking courses. Participants who found the hidden ornaments retrieved them and returned them for prizes.
