Turkey Trot has become Thanksgiving tradition

BRATTLEBORO — The annual Turkey Trot will be held on Upper Dummerston Road on Nov. 23, with the one-mile kids run scheduled to start at 9 a.m. and the three-mile race to begin at 9:15 a.m.

Both courses are out and back, starting near the Brattleboro Country Club entrance. Strollers are welcome, but runners and fans are asked to leave their dogs at home.

There is no entry fee, however you must preregister by 5 p.m. on Nov. 22 at redcloverrovers.com in order to be timed. Check-in and bib number pick up will take place from 8-8:45 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning.

Runners are encouraged to bring a nonperishable food item to donate to the local food shelf, Groundworks Collaborative. Volunteers are also needed for the race.

Brattleboro Union High School student Isaac Freitas-Eagan won last year's three-mile Turkey Trot race in 16:33. Rounding out the top 10 were: Brattleboro's Rob Lind, James Moore of Saxtons River, New Yorkers Ethan and Matt Abell, Nicholas Peterson of Massachusetts, Brattleboro's Daniel Burdo, Benny Hoy of New Hampshire, Fabio Piergentili of New Hampshire, and Brattleboro's Kalle Jahn. Putney School student Delaney Bullock was the first female finisher, placing 13th overall in 18:08.
