WCRC MEMBERS: The WCRC Wild Turkey Trot is a very important event for the club! If you’re not planning on running in the race, why not join the fun as a race volunteer. If you can help out, contact Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Founded by WCRC’s legendary Bob Randall (seated on the stage second from the right), the Santa’s Toy Trot has been providing toys and cash donations to the Merrimac Holiday Helper Program and Toys for Tots for 18 years. In addition to the great cause, where else can you choose your race distance while running!!! The course is a 2 mile loop … you can stop after 1, 2 or 3 loops. Age group awards for all three races!!! NEW THIS YEAR! Putnam’s Ski & Snowboard Shop in Portsmouth is offering a quality show shoe package to anyone who can set a new male or female course record in the 2 mile, 4 mile or 6 mile events. See race website for details.
