BELLE MEADE, TN (WSMV) -

Many people laced up their sneakers and took to the streets to get a head start on that turkey dinner for a great cause.

More than 8,600 people took part in Belle Meade's Boulevard Bolt race Thursday morning.

The event is ranked one of the five largest 5-mile races in the country.

This race is more than just a chance to burn calories. It's also a fundraiser for dozens of homeless charities in Nashville.

More than $2.5 million has been donated since the race began in 1994.
