SocalCross.org put on another great event, marking the 15th annual Turkey Trot Cross race in Glendale, CA. PAA members were there racing, spectating and volunteering for this fun local event.

Sam Hammond raced the boy 15-18 and Odinn Thordarson raced the Boys 9-14, both earned a 2nd place finish.

In the adult categories:

Susan Thompson, raced a combined Women 35+ 45+ 55+ field and got a 3rd place finish.

Bradley Thordarson raced the Men 35+ C having a blast and giving his his all. He came in a happy and exhausted 12th place out of 28.

Rob Richman, raced the Men 45+ B. As this was his first CX he started at the back of the pack. He burned a few matches to move up to the front and had to settle for a 4th place finish and a can Tecate.

Nick Humby raced the Mens 45+ A. Having little CX specific training Nick came in outside the top 10 for a 12th place finish.

Kent Hammond, raced the Elite Men A for a 7th place against some very fast and furious competitors.
