At The Races
November 27, 2008
Virtually perfect weather greeted the holiday participants for the 26th running of the Boar?s Head Turkey Trot. Some veteran trotters commented that with temperatures in the high 30?s, no wind, clear sunny skies and no moisture, it was the best weather ever. So, 1300 trotters were treated to the best racing weather of the year and by most accounts the race logistics went smoothly thanks in great part ot our big contingency of CTC volunteers who helped run the finish line show. No less than 35 of our finest were on hand to make sure the participants were treated to a well organized race experience. Folks like Carol Finch, Dave Lasch, Dan Monohan, Joe Milby, Tom Scala, Dave Murphy, Lyle Henofer, Brian Keena, Bev McCoid, Lean Connor, Glen Anderson, Mike Cassity, T.J. Wilson, Peggy Mowbray, Kenny Ball, Audrey Lorenzoni, Bill Blodgett, Vickie Marsh, Jim Dillenback, Kristin and Tommy Solomon, and Ian, Al and Joanne Rogol.
CTC members George Heeschen (17:11) and Louise McMurtrey (19:45) were not only the first members into the chutes but also the first of their gender. The club was well represented a the awards ceremony as several members took the top spot in their respective age groups: Hernan Garbini (45-49, 17:46), Amy Martin (35-39, 20:50), Harry Landers (55-59, 23:41), and Connie Friend (60-64, 28:48).
Of the 1,040 finishers close to 900 ran their way to the finish line and several members conquered this extremely challenging course in solid fashion. Most veteran racers feel this course is the toughest 5K race in the area and with over 15 different courses on our hilly circuit that?s saying something. Anne Knox, Andrea Tribastone, Stephen Bickers, Andy Wicks, Owen Lentz, Garland Matthew, Jill Jaquith, Neal Paxson, Andrew Perkins, Albert Connette and Kathy Umbdenstock all had excellent races.
Many couples and families took advantage of the holiday and joined forces in conquering this tough course: Sophie, Carter and Virginia Speidel, Peter and Colleen Mackey, Kelsey, Sarah and Erica Grupp, Kevin and Maureen O?Shea, Christian and Chris Defries, A.J., Paul, Margaret and Michael Given, Ky and Jake Lindsay, Candice and Monty Montero.
As is tradition with this holiday not-for-profit run, all of the proceeds were passed along to the fine folks at the UVA Children?s Hospital (over $25,000).

One of the area?s most popular and beloved footraces kicked off this year?s holiday season on a high note with the 26th running of the Boars Head Turkey Trot. This Thanksgiving tradition features the hilliest 5K course in the area and this year was extra challenging as the unseasonably mild temperatures made it tough going for the holiday trotters.
About 900 runners and 400 walkers traversed the ups and downs of Ednam and several CTC members finished at or close to the top of their respective age groups. Chris Post (2nd), George Heeschen (2nd), Christen Duxbury (2nd), Alec Bateman (1st), McKenzie Inigo (2nd), Sophie Speidel (2nd), Hernan Garbini (1st), Charlie Beckam (2nd), Pam Balcke (2nd), Christian Defries (1st), Mark Abel (1st), Jean Abel (3rd), Sharon Balint (2nd), John Gathright (1st), Kate Kohn (2nd), Chuck Lascano (3rd), Skip Mullaney (1st) and Barbara Wiggins (1st) were among the CTC crew scored impressive races over this challenging course.
The CTC was also well represented as over two dozen folks like Dave Lasch, Carol Finch, Dan and Alice Wiggins, Bev McCoid, Andrea and Megan Wright, Audrey Lorenzoni, Ian and Al Rogol, Tom Scala, T.J. Wilson, Bev Wispelwey, Phil Stokes, Lyle Henofer, Glen Anderson, Michael Goldman and several others helped to keep things beautifully organized. Thanks to their volunteer efforts and the support of the 1,300 participants the race was able to pass along $30,000 to the Children?s Hospital at UVA!
November 24, 2005
The area's third largest race hosted close to 1,100 runners for the 23rd running of the Turkey Trot. This popular 5K, co-hosted by the CTC and the fine folks at the Boar?s Head Sports Club, has had the unique honor of being the ?hilliest 5K in town? and thanks to a course change (because of construction on the new tennis facility) this year?s venue was more challenging than ever. One finisher described it as ?the race that gives you more hills for your money than any other race around!? How right he was, as one finisher after another commented about the hills they had just conquered.
Despite the intensity and concentration of hills throughout the Ednam Forest course, many of the finishers clocked very impressive races. The CTC took 3 of the top 5 overall spots as collegiate racers Lewis Martin (2nd, 16:58), David Miller (3rd, 17:19), and Masters ace Chris Samley (5th, 17:44) swept into the chutes. CTC ace Beth Cottone followed her impressive 3:17 NYC Marathon effort with an equally speedy 19:54 clocking good for 2nd overall.
As usual, the CTC was well represented on the awards stand as they took home blue ribbons in their respective age groups: In addition to Samley (40-44), and Cottone (35-39), Sophie Speidel (40-44), Cal Fowler (65-69), Kiyoko Asao-Ragosta (45-49), Linda Scandore (55-59) and Wendell Golden (75+) all took home top honors in their age groups.
Other CTC times of note were clocked by the following hearty holiday trotters: Kristen Keller, George Heeschen, Adam Goldfarb, Kara Flavin, Richard Young, Brian Muszynski, Bruce Schirmer, Richard Moon, Ky Lindsay, George Gillies, Angelique Holthus, Michael Holthus, Lise Willingham, Bob Arseneau, Greg Meade, Tony Rogosta, Sachi Rogosta, Dan Dunsmore, Sharon Balint, Harold Workman, Daniel Foley, Melanie Gillies, Rich Barrett, Chris Peterson, Carla Martin, Linda Crank, Matthew Workman, Kathleen Moore, Sarah Goldfarb, Arleen Yobs, and Patty Workman to name a few.
All total, close to 100 members conquered the hills of this challenging but fun race and in the process helped to raise several thousand dollars for the UVA Children?s Hospital, a most worthy cause.
The CTC was instrumental in organizing the race day course and finish line logistics as over 35 members helped guide all of the holiday runners and walkers to a safe and organized finish. Of particular help was Carol Finch, who spent a good part of her Thanksgiving Day compiling the results for this huge event.
November 27, 2003
Perfect running weather greeted the participants for this year?s Turkey Trot. This holiday event features the largest mix of runners and walkers of any of our local events and yet the course is one of the toughest in the area. Run over steep up and downhills, this 5K course rarely treats the participants to a flat section.
CTC members Josiah and Jeremy Cadle did brotherly battle over the hills. Josiah, a JMU speedster, out-kicked his older brother (15:34 to 15:49) bringing both of them across in some of the fastest times ever run on this challenging course. Former CHS and Cornell standout Carlan Gray (19:32) out-legged former WAHS and University of Richmond racer Anne Rettig (19:52), also excellent times over this tough course. CTC member Beth Cottone finished 3rd woman overall in 20:24.
Over 1100 folks traversed the beautiful course, running their way to a guilt free afternoon of eating celebration. Several CTC members scored impressive blue ribbons in their perspective age groups including Bob Giesen, Mark Abel, Richard Young, Beth Cottone, Cal Fowler, Mary-Lewis Meador, Mary Napoleon, Sarah Katz, Karen Loftus, Pam Stratos, Nancy Fraser and Wendell Golden.
The CTC helped organize the race day course and finish line logistics and by all accounts the club shone in their efforts. Over 35 members contributed to the cause by lending a hand and the Boar?s Head was most appreciative. Over $12,000 was donated to the Children?s Medical Center from the race proceeds!
