First Annual 5K Turkey Trot Race!
November 24th, 2015
Our first ever trail race was a hit! 187 runners took part in our inaugural 5K Turkey Trot Challenge. Although NO ONE believed us, this was just a 5K trail run, no obstacles, crazy elevation or funny business on the beautiful Cumberland Monsatery trails! Local hero William Ferullo established our course record in taking home the win in 19:35 and ALL finishers loved their medals and especially loved the donuts at the finish line!!! We also collected and donated over 40 baskets of food for the Rhode Island Community Food Bank
