Wellesley Turkey Trot Recap

The start of the race (picture via
The past few years I've run the Framingham Turkey Trot, but with a new town comes a new race. So this year I signed up for the Wellesley Turkey Trot to get a fun run in before sitting down for a large meal.

The Wellesley Turkey Trot begins and ends on Linden Street, giving runners a slight uphill in the beginning and downhill at the end. The course goes through the center of town, before winding through the beautiful Wellesley College Campus, then loops back through the center and to the finish line. It's a closed course and brings out lots of people of all ages - it's a true family race.

And the finish line is about 25 feet from a Starbucks so you can get warm after the race.

Overall it's a wonderful race - it has some rolling hills, beautiful scenery and is serious enough for some runners while relaxed enough for others. I'm sure this will become a new annual tradition.
