5th Annual BSU Turkey Trot

Sunday morning started off as a rainy fall morning but as luck would have it the skies stopped raining just in time for the 11AM start time of the 5th Annual BSU Turkey Trot. The race takes place on the grounds of Bridgewater State University and features a 5k run and a 3k walk option and comes just in time for burning off some pre-Thanksgiving calories.

The race course is a 50/50 split of both paved roads and trail running through all within the Bridgewater State University campus. Though I have lived in Bridgewater for over a decade, I never have run the trails on campus. The trail system is a great running resource and even though it rained that morning the trails were in very good condition for the race. It was an interesting proposition to mix trail and road running for the race and the course forced you to really mix up your running style as you made your way up and down the section of campus known as Great Hill and then ran on dirt and dodged roots and rocks. After finishing up the trail system an then heading back up Great Hill, the last stretch of the race was a steep decline followed by a flat straightaway heading into the finish line.

This was my first race back since the New York City Marathon and I was pleased with my time of 24:25, good for 7:51/miles.

All proceeds from this race benefit the Old Colony YMCA’s Family Services division. For more information about this organization, please click here.
