    For most runners in the USA, the idea of running a turkey trot in Fargo, ND is probably absurd. However, late November weather in ND is not always frigid. This year, temperatures were hovering around freezing for the 8:30 a.m. start. One nice thing about this race is that you can stay inside the Cass County YMCA prior to the start and stay warm. The race was chipped timed, but I found out afterwards that the chips were only used to set the finishing times and no net time was recorded. Because I started in the middle of the pack, I ended up losing about 30 seconds of time before I crossed the starting line. The course headed south on a street for about a mile when the 5K runners separated from the 10K course. The 10K course then turned onto a bike path along the Red River for about a 1.5 mile out and back. We then went back up to the streets to head back to the finish. The race is fairly flat with just one 5 foot drop to go onto the bike trails along the river. No age group awards were given out, although age group placing was recorded on the results. Swag included a cotton t-shirt, a finisher’s medal, and the usual coupons in the swag bag. This is probably one of the bigger turkey trots in the Dakotas, so has plenty of competition.
