You exceeded our expectations!
Last year, 69 runners showed up for the inaugural Taos Turkey Trot 5k run/walk. This year 149 registered from seven states and throughout the state of New Mexico. We were excited to see lots of families, people of all ages and a few who were appropriately dressed as turkeys…all to support a great cause on a beautiful Taos bluebird day.
The overall winner for men this year was our very own Taos Tiger, Francisco Vigil. Seventeen year old Francisco broke the course record by running the 5k in 18 minutes 11 seconds. The overall women’s winner was Sarah Drenning. Sarah came back this year to beat her second place finish last year with a time of 25:06.
