Wild Turkey Trot at Pipestave Hill Canceled for 2020

The 31st Annual Winner’s Circle Running Club Greater Newburyport Wild Turkey Trot 3.1 mile X-country run/walk at Pipestave Hill / Mill Pond Recreation Center in West Newbury, MA is canceled for 2020 due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. The race will return in 2021. Despite the cancelation of this popular annual event, the WCRC strongly encourages all of our WTT friends and families to carve out some time on Thanksgiving morning and go for a run through your local neighborhood or park. Stay well, run safe and see you all in 2021.

For WCRC members: The club is planning a scaled down, club members only Wild Turkey Trot that will use the popular Predict Your Time format. This will take place Thanksgiving morning. Details will be communicated via club email around mid-October…stay tuned!


In support of our athletes who had qualified and registered for the canceled 124th (2020) BAA Boston Marathon and were subsequently provided a small window of opportunity to run on their own on an unspecified and unsupported course a “virtual” version of the Boston Marathon, the WCRC has created Coronathon 2020. Instead of facing the daunting task of running a marathon alone, thirty WCRC marathoners will participate on the same beautiful, safe and fully supported course.

During the aptly named Coronathon; naturally divergent runner pacing will provide extreme social distancing over the 26.2 mile course, and to make this already challenging event even more challenging, all runners will don facial covering while passing through areas where facial covering mandates are in place.

Coronathon updates (split times, finish times, etc.) will be posted to the WCRC’s Facebook page throughout the day and as close to real-time as possible.

WCRC Strong!
