NORWICH – The 36th annual Turkey Trot was a great success despite the weather. With temperatures in the mid 30’s and snow blowing in racers faces, over 400 participants still came out for the great fundraiser for the Norwich Family YMCA.
“Despite weather conditions, we had a fair turnout but would like to see those numbers come back up to the numbers they were in previous years,” said race organizer Shannon Gawronski. “We will be looking to do some different things in the future so keep an eye out for those.”
Gawronski went on to say, “The race went on without a hiccup, an accident or an incident and that makes for a successful race.”
Shaun Horan of Norwich finished first overall in the race with an official time of 17:53.67. The first female to finish the race and crowning herself the overall female winner was Amanda Lo Piccolo of (place) with a time of 18:18.03, around 11 seconds after Horan and two seconds after Ben Ericksen (first in the male 16-19 age group).
