2009 Wilmington Turkey Trot is a Huge Success!

The Fourth Annual Friends of the Wilmington Parks Turkey Trot was held on November 26th (aka Thanksgiving Day). It was a chilly morning, but the sun was shining on the 194 runners and walkers that participated in this year’s event. We are very fortunate that so many people chose to get up early on their holiday to brave the chilly morning air to share their Thanksgiving with us. Thank you for coming out to support the parks and trails. We hope all of our participants had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

***This is the corrected Awards listing. We want to apologize to Bruce Davis and Tracy Ames for missing them on race day! We are correcting our timing issues for future races. We hope to have a timing company next year. Our goal for over the next five years is to grow this event to host at least 500 participants. Tell your friends and families to come out and share the day with us next year.
