TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

 

There are some runners who participate in only a handful of races each year. But the Thanksgiving Day MS Run is one they would never miss. “We’ve come out for this race for the last 20 years,” said 5K participant and Hockessin resident Frank Jornlin, who ran with wife Ann, daughter Carly and son Kevin. “Our kids just expect that I will sign them up. And our whole family likes to start off the Thanksgiving holiday with a fun run – but we kind of take it seriously.”

In fact, three of the Jornlins landed medals: Frank landed 1st, Carly 2nd, and Ann 2nd in their respective age/gender groups. Now that’s a family that earned a second portion at the holiday dinner table!

Now celebrating its 38th year, the Thanksgiving Day MS Run sponsored by PNC Bank is one of the city’s most popular. This year 1,716 runners completed the 5k and 772 crossed the 10k finish line, with all races managed by races2run.com.
