Many people that visit or live in the local community make the Thanksgiving Day Run an annual tradition. Bob Smola a resident of Decatur, Michigan has participated in all 33 Niles-Buchanan Thanksgiving Day Runs. “I still remember the very first Thanksgiving Day Run back in 1982. The start/finish line was at a hotel across from the baseball field south of town. It was either a Holiday Inn or Howard Johnson, not sure on that one. The course was pretty much the same as today; except we ran it counter clockwise" stated Smola.
