MHS Runners Are Tops at Turkey Trot

Runners from Mamaroneck High School won first place in both the men’s and women’s categories at the 41st annual Mamaroneck Turkey Trot on November 22. They competed in a pack of 319 runners, from pre-teens to golden agers.

Thaddeus Sheehan, age 15, who also runs with the Westchester Track Club, won the race in 28 minutes and 23 seconds. The first place woman was MHS junior Gina Talt, who came in at 33:40. Another Mamaroneck High School runner, Ben Wach, placed in the top ten with a time of 30:22. (Click for more results.)

The 5-mile course winds through the streets of Orienta, past Hommocks Middle School and back up the Boston Post Road, finishing at Harbor Island.

“I started to really pick up the pace a little before the 4 mile mark,” commented Thaddeus after the race. “And then it felt great breaking the finish line tape at my hometown.”

The Mamaroneck Village Recreation Department, hosts of the race, announced that they are considering a switch to a 5 kilometer (3.1mi) course for next year. The shorter distance is deemed to be more popular with runners.

However the change would not please this year’s winner. “This is very sad considering that this will ruin the long-running Mamaroneck tradition of the 5 mile,” Thaddeus said.
