The 5K Turkey Trot held Saturday Nov 30th had the most runners since the event began 9 years ago. The day was sunny a little cold but no wind so it made for a great run. The first place male winner was John Hirsch with a time of 18:35 and the first place female was Olivia Delia with her time of 20:01. Under 17 in the female division was Margaret Stover with a time of 20:53 and the male under 17 was Richie Conant time of 19:41. Thank you for everyone that came and participated in the event, the sponsors and the volunteers without your support the race couldn’t happen. The proceeds from the race are donated to a Island Charity yet to be determined. Last year the proceeds went to the Solviken Project.
