HCS Turkey Trot Prediction Run 10K
Columbia, MD
Thursday, November 27, 2008
Conducted by Howard County Striders

by Jim Carbary
One of the tightest prediction races ever in Howard County took place on Thanksgiving morning at Jeffers Hill. David Tarkow edged Brian Nist by one hundredth of a second to win the 2008 Turkey Trot 10k. Together with Theresa Sachs, they came within a second of finishing the prediction run at exactly the appointed hour of 11:00 AM. These top three won gift certificates to the Macaroni Grill. For his extremely accurate running, Mr. Nist also received Barack Obama's book The Audacity of Hope, while Mr. Tarkow received a dining guide to Washington, DC, and the coveted Brass Turkey Trophy. Actually, it's only plastic dressed up to look like brass.

Clear, cool fall weather brought a field of 267 to the Turkey Trot, where precise pacing trumped speed. The runners were all trying to finish as close to 11 AM as possible. Most seemed to be in a hurry: 171 finished before 11 AM, while only 86 came in after the hour. Maybe they wanted to get the Dunkin Donuts and orange juice that waited at the finish. None of them were in a hurry to see Tennessee clobber Detroit, that's for sure.

The Striders stage the prediction event every Thanksgiving. The Trot benefits the David Tripp Scholarship Fund. Past Scholarship awardees such as Craig Lebro, J.P. Allera, Kyle Andrews, and Amanda Strawitch participated.

Len Guralnick directed the event. Unknown to the participants, a timing machine malfunctioned at the finish line. Fortunately, results from the backup machine manned by Dwight Mikulis saved the day.

Even though it was only fund run type of thing, the Turkey Trot offered some special performances. Jim DiScuillo ran only his second Turkey Trot ever. He usually handles the results, but this year turned the computer over to Brian Fleming. And 11-year-old Clark Demaree ran his first 10k ever. According to his mother, Marsha, he had never run farther than 2 miles and he didn.t stop once.
