Things were back to normal this year as the Race Director, through wise use of a consultant, returned the Turkey Trot to it's traditional course east from the Ski Lodge. This fact alone probably contributed to 11 runners finishing this predicted-time race, within one minute of their predicted time. Both Dave Cowee and Jane Lanford finished the race within 3 seconds of their predicted times, to tie for first place. Since there was only one Cornish Game Hen (for first place), and noone wanted to whack that tiny bird in two, a toss of the coin (by the Race Director) landed the bird in Jane's arms. The other Game Hen, the one with the Red Lantern around it's neck, was won by Paul Reynolds. Using an extremely scientific selection procedure, the Turkey was awarded to Stuart Grant.
