Turkey Trot


The annual Turkey Trot brought out 241 hearty souls who ran, jogged, and walked the 5K course on a blustery, bone-chilling Thanksgiving morning in Oak Bluffs.

Not content to merely run, five brave entrants followed up their trot with a dip in the frosty waters off East Chop.

First to the finish line was Jon Evan Hornsby of Brooklyn, N.Y., who completed the course in 16:22.

The rest of the top ten included Brendan O’Keefe, Fairfield, Conn., 18:04; Ryan O’Keefe, Fairfield, Conn., 18:05; Greg Shea, Stowe, Vt. 18:16; Paul Vertefeuille, Vineyard Haven, 18:35; Samwell McGrath, Norwood, 19:25; Mark Desautelle, Oak Bluffs, 19:27; Zach Via, Ithaca, N.Y., 20:18; Regan Steenkamp, Vineyard Haven, 20:21; and Tess Rogers of Lexington, the first woman to finish, in 20:23.
