Lowville Turkey Trot 2022
The annual Lowville Turkey Day 5 K was
held on a beautiful north country day. Thanksgiving Day greeted exactly 200
runners and walkers with temperatures in the mid-thirties and partly cloudy
skies. Family groups of seven and eight came from near and far and enjoyed
their exercise early on the holiday.
The event is a
family fun run with no official timing or awards. Many participants dress
in turkey attire and we had a great group of
children among the walkers and runners. Everyone has a good time and by 10
AM we head home to enjoy the remainder of the holiday.
While the event is informal, there were
many speedy runners on the road. Grace Bailey from Lyons Falls was the
fastest women at 21:45. She was followed by Eliana Bonbrest
in 22:20 and Grace Davis close behind in 22:38. For the men, Hunter Moore
from Croghan led the pack for the second year in a row in a swift 17:30.
Conner Zehr was second in 18:17 followed by the
group of Mason Zehr, MacCoy
Maciejko and Mitchell Domagala
Community Center is proud to host the eleventh annual Lowville Turkey Day
5K. Double Play expresses a special thank you to Dr. Steve Lyndaker and Dr. Shereen Palmer at Lowville Medical Associates.
The local medical practice has sponsored the run every year since its inception.
Invenergy Number Three Wind was also a lead sponsor this year!
The Turkey Trot provides all its proceeds
to the United Way Renee Beyer Memorial Fund with approximately $3,000
raised this year. Double Play Community Center has been dedicated to
raising funds for this cause with multiple events each year. The Lowville
Turkey Day 5K will be back in 2023 to kick off the Thanksgiving holiday.
