Tyler Slaney, Turkey Trot
First-place runner Tyler Slaney stands with Miss Pumpkin Fest, Sydney Elder.
The first annual Turkey Trot 5K race/walk in Spartansburg was held Sunday, Nov. 20, hosted by Spartansburg Events.
Event organizer Amanda Slaney said that many people had registered but the snow and cold kept all but 10 away.
One participant — Tyler Slaney — chose to run the 5K and finished with a time of 18:07. The other nine walked the course, which primarily traveled along Clear Lake’s East Branch Trail.
Miss Fall PumpkinFest Sydney Elder was on hand to congratulate the runners and walkers on completing the course.
