2012 5 km Run/Walk Results
This note comes from Jack Harvey, our run coordinator. Another great job this year, Jack!
The 5K Turkey Trot Road Race started at 9 am on Turkey Fair Day with 33 runners participating. The fastest male runner was Jamie Porter with a new world record time of 19:25. Nora Bright was our fastest female at 25:35, also a new world record! The winner of the draw for the cool bird (a frozen turkey) was Sarah Curry. We had more runners this year than even before and hope for another increase next year. Many of the runners are repeats from past years. Most runners say they like the varied terrain and general conditions.
