Fourth annual Turkey Trot is a success
The Kirkwood Student Nursing Association (KSNA) held its fourth annual Turkey Trot on Nov. 5.
“This year’s 5K race had 46 runners and walkers registered at race time,” said Kirkwood Community College Nursing Instructor Nicoleta Nica. Nica also said that once again, the students plan to use the profits this year as donations to His Hands, which is a free medical clinic located in Cedar Rapids, and help pay expenses to a nursing conference.
The race got off to a chilly start with the temperature being only 42 degrees but that didn’t seem to deter any of the participants. Changes in this year’s race, included overall male and overall female finishers in first, second and third place. Another new addition included official race times being tracked and recorded courtesy of On The Run Race Timing. They provided each runner with a timing chip that went on their shoes to record start and finish times. Digital clocks were also provided at the end of the race so that racers could see their finish time.
First place overall male winner was Adam Kassem of Cedar Rapids, a Kirkwood nursing student, finishing with a time of 17:46. First place overall female winner was Alice Anderson, of Marion, finishing with a time of 19:45. The first-place finishers received a turkey as their prize. Kids who participated received a medal and all runners were given an event t-shirt.
Volunteers once again helped make this a successful event by helping pass out water to racers, helping with registration and many other details that helped make a difference, according to Nika.
