UMBC Running Club had a good showing at the UMBC Turkey Trot this year. Of the 7 athletes that competed, three of them placed in the top three in their category. Conner McIntyre and Robbie Oehrli finished second and third respectively each setting a new Personal Best. They said that they worked together throughout the race, pushing each other, in order to break their times from the Dog Chase in October. Their results surpassed expectations, running 16:54 and 16:57 respectively. Robbie also finished second in his local 5k on Thanksgiving, running 17:38.
Kim Daniels won the women's division for the Turkey Trot, finishing with a time of 22:59. At the start of the race she did not have any expectations of winning the race or finishing with that kind of time. She said "I didn't believe the guys when they said I won at the end of the race. I just wanted to
see what sort of time I could make since it was my first race. As it turns out I was pleasantly surprised". Once she crossed the finish line she was also surprised to hear that she had won a fourteen pound turkey for being the top female finisher.
