The 4th Annual Turkey Can Can presented by Ekonk Hill Turkey Farm took place on Saturday, November 19th, in Sterling, CT. Under summertime conditions, 82 runners experienced a little bit of everything before crossing the finish line. The course started with two laps around a cinder track, followed by a short run down Rte 14 and then 1/10 of a mile on the Moosup Valley Rail Trail. Runners then attacked a mile long hill on town roads, followed by a lengthy downhill and then finished the final 1/10 over grass; something for everyone.
The first to cross the finish line was Turkey Can Can veteran Cindy Ouilette in a speedy 21:15. The second and third place females were Karen Houle and Jocelyn Richards, 7th and 8th overall. The first male finisher was William Liebler in 21:57, who was 2nd overall and one of four members of the Liebler family to run. The 2nd and 3rd place men were Craig Beers and Steve Finton.
As usual, the beneficiary was the Project PIN Sterling/Plainfield Food Pantry. At a time when the need has never been greater, in addition to cash, the runners donated a truck full of food. The 2017 event will be held on November 18th.
