    Great cause, well organized, new family tradition!  The course offers quite an uphill challenge, but worth the calorie burn for that Thanksgiving dinner.

    Always well organized and well done.  Always a good time to burn some calories on Thanksgiving.  Attached is post with a couple of pics of the participants.

    I started at the very front of the pack and my chip time was 3.5 mins slower than the gun time.  Weird.    I noticed several others have chip time > gun time.   Precision race timing company needs to check there equipment.  : )

     

    Anyway great race, beat my goal pace!!!  Overall fun event!

    Lots of fun and helped me not feel guilty about eating that large piece of pie!  Everyone is extremely helpful and it was great to raise money for a good cause.  My kids are also big supporters of the Kids Dash.  They wore their medals all day!

    This is a really well organized race on a great course and for a good cause.

     

    However, I think this is my last year doing the Ridgewood Turkey Trot. I'm going to take my chances with one of the 3 other Turkey Trots in the Raleigh area. My reason is the same as HurricaneSurfer - I've never had an accurate time from "Precision" Race. Sad that it puts a sour note on a great race but if I wanted to go off my watch time I wouldnt pay extra for a chip.
