This year’s Turkey Trot for Fun was another repeat success, as runners from around the island and world challenged themselves to accurately guess their race times. 113 registered runners sprinted off the starting line early Thanksgiving morning, and over $1000 was raised to benefit Maui’s Food Bank. In addition to entry fees, 254lbs of canned goods was collected for the Foodbank. Race organizer Cathy Fitzpatrick (Valley Isle Road Runners) was overjoyed at response from race participants and funds raised for Maui’s Foodbank.
