Record 3,072 finish Turkeyman Trot 5K
Crowe, Senakiewich are Turkeyman Trot winners
A record 3,072 runners and walkers finished the Lansing Turkeyman Trot 5K on Thanksgiving morning.
Jake Crowe (Grand Ledge/Central Michigan) completed the 3.1-mile course that started and finished in front of Lansing Community College’s Gannon Center in 14 minutes, 59 seconds. A strong finish enabled Crowe to edge Nick Katseferas (Pinckney/Michigan State) and former Detroit Free Press Marathon champion and Haslett coach Nick Stanko (Michigan), who came in at 15:00 and 15:02.
Crowe also won a year ago when 2,308 finishers completed the annual Thanksgiving event — which was up from 1,780 in 2009.
Lisa Senakiewich (Davison/MSU) was the first female finisher in 17:03. Four other females ran faster than 19 minutes: Jennifer Snelgrove (Grand Ledge/LCC) in 18:24, Becca Schlaff in 18:31, Chloe Prince (Okemos/U-M) in 18:35, Danielle Dakroub (Okemos/CMU) in 18:40 and Christy Snelgrove (Grand Ledge) in 18:57.
