NORWICH - Sunday, November 22, marked the 34 Annual Norwich YMCA Turkey Trot. The annual 5K drew hundreds of competitors from all over the area.
This year 638 runners competed for the top spot overall and in their age groups. Coming in number one overall was John Mooney of Norwich. Mooney, a first time winner, ran the race in 17:04. “I haven’t been able to compete since 2012,” said Mooney, a runner on the R.I.T. Cross Country team. “I was lucky enough to be able to come home a little early from college this year to run it.”
Mooney competes on the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Division III Cross Country team and was able to compete in D-III’s Atlantic Region meet on November 14.
