Runners convene in Seaside on Thanksgiving holiday
By R.J. Marx
Seaside Signal
A little rain wasn’t about to
keep anybody away.
Applause and cheers greet-
ed runners and walkers who
braved the elements in Sea-
side’s annual Turkey Trot, a
5K run from Quatat Park to
the Prom, down to Avenue S,
east to Edgewood and back to
the park.
Formidable winds added to
the challenge for runners.
“I thought it would slow
them down, but I think it’s
even almost more fun because
it’s raining,” said Grace Smith
of the Sunset Empire Park and
Recreation District. “It’s a lit-
tle more excitement.”
Sunset Rec Executive Di-
rector Skyler Archibald joined
the cast of about 70 runners,
his third year as a participant.
Out-of-towners included
the Tingley family, who vis-
it every Thanksgiving from
Vancouver, Washington.
Lydia Tingley, 9, was run-
ning her first race. “I run in
school,” she said. “I’ve done
races with my friends.”
Denis Glenn of San Fran-
cisco came up to spend time
with family over the holiday.
He was running his second
Turkey Trot.
Jim Simmons was visiting
from Vashon, Washington.
“We were looking for things
to do and we found it on the
website,” Simmons said. “I’m
out for fun today.”
Local runners included
Ashley Verhulst of Gearhart,
dressed for the holiday with
a turkey hat on her head. A
“runner for fun,” this was her
first Turkey Trot. She was
slightly wary about the weath-
er. “I like running in the rain
— a little.”
Seaside Public Library
Director Esther Moberg was
suited up and ready, as was
the convention center’s Kath-
erine Lacaze.
Smith gave the starting
signal and the runners headed
toward the Prom, a few with
barking dogs in tow. The rain
and the winds picked up, turn-
ing the Turkey Trot into a tur-
key torrent.
Some 18 minutes later,
Alex Van Slyke was the first
to complete the circuit.
“It’s terrible for about the
first two minutes,” Van Slyke
said in the immediate after-
math. “You’re soaked to the
bone. Then you get into the
groove of things. After two
minutes you don’t notice it
one bit. Maybe the wind, but
not the rain.”
Women’s race winner Ginny
Meadway of Seaside finished
with a time of 19:55.
Ginny Meadway of Sea-
side was the first woman to
complete the race.
For Meadway, the elements
were only a minor obstacle.
When you’re a runner, “You
run in everything,” she said.
