Delmar Turkey Trot 2017
DELMAR — It was déjà vu all over again at Bethlehem’s annual turkey trot this morning, Thursday, Nov. 23.
Hundreds of running enthusiasts both competitive and recreational gathered at the steps of Bethlehem Central Middle School to partake in a casual race through Old Delmar, many of whom returned from last year.
Delmar’s Simon Powhida, a track star for the University of Maine, crossed the finish line with a time of 15:52. Cornell track star Leah Triller, a resident of Glenmont, finished first among women racers. Each finished first in last year’s competition, too.
