SOME Trot for Hunger 5k
Hallie ran a strong 18:25 for 2nd place in what looks to be a potential PR over 5k. Our fact-checkers are furiously working behind the scenes to verify this claim.
RRRC Turkey Trot 10k
Cabell just barely lost out in a sit-and-kick battle with a college-aged speedster. His time of 33:17 was good for 2nd place.
Run to Feed the Hungry 5k
Max ran 15:44 for 8th overall, narrowly outkicking his fluffy dog as depicted in the photo to the right.
Piedmont Turkey Trot 5k
Sean B and ex-pat Sam Luff finished 2nd and 3rd, respectively, with times of 16:28 and 16:40. Reports indicate that the second mile is dramatically uphill.
MPLS Turkey Day 5K
Kyle W ran a solid 15:09 for 4th place in arctic conditions, proving true the old maxim that you can take the boy out of Minnesota, but you can't take Minnesota out of the boy.
Charlotte Southpark 5.13-Miler
Panhandle Crew standout Lucas S came close to besting his time from last year with a 23:57 clocking for 1st place. While it's a bummer that this year's course was accidentally long, I'm sure Lucas is happy that he can now claim two course records from one race.
Unnamed Chicago 5k
Ryan, the other half of the Panhandle Crew, ran 16:08 for 2nd (?) place. This race probably has a name but Ryan has chosen not to share it.
Greater Woodbury Turkey Trot 5k
Margaret ran a strong PR of 18:19 and finished as the first female in this small New Jersey race.
Race for the Park Turkey Trot 5k
Up in Long Island, Sarah finished 2nd overall in 17:45.
Portland Thanksgiving Day 4-Miler
Rob braved arctic Maine conditions for 4th overall in 20:52. Local Maine residents reportedly made fun of him on the cooldown for only tolerating cold weather as well as a normal person.
Bedford Springs Turkey Trot 5k
Bucking the trend of Thanksgiving races held on Thanksgiving Day, Emily K ran 17:55 for 5k in Bedford Springs, PA on Saturday. While the course may have been short, she finished as the 1st female and placed 3rd overall.
