The Smithfield Recreation 2011 Turkey Trot went off with a bang despite freezing temperatures and icy roads. When the storm hit the day before, the rec center decided to go ahead with the race, but expected many runners to not show up. It was just the opposite. All but 11 runners picked up their race packets, and they had many day-of-race registrations.
A good turnout for the inaugural running of the “Not Yo’ Momma’s Half Marathon and 5K” saw a brother and sister team win the 5K and a couple of experienced runners take the top spots in the Half Marathon.
