Dissa, Sondag — And A Turkey — Lead The Way In Annual Turkey Trot
The 13th Annual Turkey Trot to benefit C.H. Booth Library took place on a 30-degree Thanksgiving morning and there were 974 finishers who earned their extra stuffing in the 5K which started and finished at Newtown Middle School.
Soheib Dissa, who was fifth last year's Turkey Trot — his first 5K — led the field, winning a time of 16:18. He was followed by Aidan Budge in 16:44, Ryan Escoda in 17:23, Joey Conrod in 18:18, Liam Murphy who finished in 18:34, and top female and sixth-place runner Jeanna Sondag who came across in 18:38.
Rounding out the top ten were Noah Masotta in 18:39, Landon Wall in 18:45, Matt Brantl with a time of 18:55, and Eric Fagan who clocked in at 18:57.
Some of the runners wore turkey hats, and Hadrian Gardner even took on the course wearing an inflatable turkey. "Luckily, he did most of the running," joked Gardner, who made this a true turkey trot.
