Well over 200 participants took part in the 2009 Turkey Trot.

The Turkey Trot was held Nov. 22. The annual race, which is sponsored by the Atomic City Roadrunners, was held on North Mesa.

The 2.57-mile run was held as a benefit to LA Cares and CROP.

The first finisher at the Turkey Trot this year was Alexander Romero, who finished the course in 14 minutes, 37 seconds, the only participant to break 15 minutes.

Bill Crooks finished second in the race (15:19), followed by Daniel Romeron in third place (15:54).

Also at the race, the Roadrunners honored the top placers for this year’s pace race season. The pace race is a weekly event held during Daylight Savings Time hours where runners predict their finish time.

Ted Romero was this year’s top predictor, having a cumulative prediction error of 236 seconds. Romero was followed by Michael Jablin (352 seconds), David Kratzer (420 seconds), Tom Sandford (470 seconds) and Roy Cope (490 seconds).

Here are the results from the Turkey Trot.
