Records Set at Marlborough’s Tough Ten Mile Turkey Trot


A record number of athletes participated in the 3rd Annual Tough Ten Mile Turkey Trot held at Ghiloni Park in Marlboro on Sunday morning. The sun was shining bright and the unseasonable warmer weather offered perfect conditions for the 71 participants who attacked the tough hills of Hudson and Marlboro.


Sumner Fletcher from Uxbridge was forth overall, and the first female finisher shattering the old course record with a time of 1:04:10. The old record was held by Kara Benson from Sudbury in a time of 1.06.22. Tara Vance from Roslindale and Lisa Danielson from Shrewsbury finished in 2nd and 3rd respectfully.


In the men’s division, Andrew Wommick from Brighton won in a time of 56.41. Wommick’s time was the second fastest ever on the course. Pat Ryan from Westwood and Thomas McDonaugh from Westboro was 2nd and 3rd respectfully.


Craig Blum (18th overall - 1.16.47) and Lisa de Mars (21st overall – 1.18.38) were the first male and female finishers from Marlboro.


The Tough Ten Mile Turkey Trot is a very unique race: not only because it has a one-mile hill, 3/4ths of the way through the course, but also because the entry fee is ten can goods. With over 1,000 can goods raised for the Marlboro Food Pantry, the participants loved the idea and promised to return next year too!


The Turkey Trot is sponsored by the many outstanding members of the Highland City Striders, the Marlborough Recreation Department and the Marlboro High Indoor Track Teams. David Grasso, Recreation Department Director stated recently, “We like to get involved in the greater Marlboro community, especially with events that promote fitness and benefit the less fortunate.”
