The 22nd Annual Center for Educational Advancement/ Johanna Foods Turkey Trot 5K Run and 2 Mile Fitness Walk took over the streets of Flemington on Thanksgiving Day November 27, 2014. A remarkably ill-timed winter storm came in on Thanksgiving Eve to make everybody a bit nervous, however the exceptional work of many, particularly the Borough of Flemington Department of Public Works in close cooperation with local Police Department, the Flemington Office of Emergency Management, the Mayor and Borough Council, the Flemington-Raritan EMS squad and, of course the engineering and other departments of the County of Hunterdon helped clear the roads and allowed the event to take place as scheduled. A large crowd of 1,181 walkers and 4,332 registered runners set off for this 22nd Annual Thanksgiving Day Classic. The approximately 5,513 participants represented 33 states and the District of Columbia.
Liam Boylan Pett, 29, of Clinton, NJ was the overall winner with a time of 15:40:76. First place female finisher, for the second consecutive year was Katrina Spratford, 24, from Califon, NJ with a time of 16:52.80. Marcos Duarte of Astoria, NY was the first place male masters finisher (17:29:39) and Monique Ahle of Flemington, NJ took first place in the female masters category (19:43:48). Top male team was Stovetop (1:03:26), top coed team was the Base Camp Athletic Club (49:40:87), the top female team was Gobble 'Till You Woddle (1:34:39). Top male masters team was Shannon Daley Memorial Fund (1:33:38) and top coed team was the Turkey Gobblers (1:32:50).
Race Director Michael Skoczek said “I am most grateful to the thousands of runners and walkers who came out today, the dozens of event sponsors and friends who make this event happen, and as a result raise funds so we can continue to educate, empower and employ individuals with special needs. I am also grateful to the residents of Flemington who have embraced this event and come out and cheer the participants, the Flemington BID and the Flemington Borough Council. The event could not be a success without constant support and assistance from Mayor Erica Edwards, who spoke before the event, the Flemington Police Department, the Borough of Flemington Dept. of Public Works, the Flemington-Raritan EMS squad, the Hunterdon County Freeholders and many others.
