Letter: A Wild Turkey thank you


Special gratitude to the many volunteers who donated their Thanksgiving morning to help at the race: Tom O’Shea, Joanne Scott, Tim Short, Beth O’Grady, John Neely, Melissa, Lucas and Ilene Simons, Connor Buso-Jarnis, Ed Zielinski, Sandy George, Jay Hanahan, Meghan Murtagh, Kathy O’Donnell, Ben Hartley, Tom St. Pierre, Lisa Cammarata, Andy Sousa, TR Ramsdell, Kerry and Natalie Phelan, Paul Cranney, Dave Drillis, Stephanie Hagyard, Mario Fagone, Nancy Bellomo-Santana, Estella Moriety, Mike Toomey, and the great cheering group from the Willows led by Malia Griffin. Special thanks to Michele and Gif Campbell for the great photography they did at the race!!

Special thanks to the Salem police, who did a great job of controlling the traffic during the race to keep the runners safe, and to the many Salem residents along the route who cheered our runners on!

While congratulations go out to all of our Wild Turkey finishers, special recognition goes to the 150 local runners who successfully completed the 2012 Salem Road Race Series by running eight Salem races ranging in distance from a mile to a half-marathon. Commemorative running jackets were awarded after the Turkey race in recognition of this achievement. For those of you inspired to sign up for the 2013 Salem Road Race, see or email Tim Short at Sign up soon so you can join us for the first race of 2012 on New Year’s Day: The Frosty Four.

Again, thank you to everyone for making this another great Thanksgiving Day event!
