Lowville Turkey Trot 2019
day. Thanksgiving Day greeted approximately 155 runners with temperatures in
the mid thirties and cloudy skies. By the time the runners started the 5 K snow
was in the air. What else would we expect?
The event is a family fun run with no official timing or awards. Many participants
dress in turkey attire. After the run, donuts and chocolate milk are highlights and
a number of prizes are raffled to lucky runners. Nicole Sadowski was the first
female to finish the event in a time of 23:15 and she was followed closely by
Nicole Nath and Jane Jennings in 23:42 and 23:56, respectively. The male
runners were led by Ethan Moore in 19:32, Hunter Moore in 19:40 and Michael
Peebles in 20:00.
