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.”
