Butterball 5K is the coldest in recent memory

More than 200 runners braved temperatures in the low 20’s Thanksgiving morning to complete the Butterball 3.1 mile race at the Forum of Salisbury. This was thought to be the coldest Thanksgiving in history, but runners and walkers bundled up to get their workout done and burn some significant calories in anticipation of a large meal later in the day.
Race director Rayna Gardner said, “What a great turnout on such a cold, cold morning! We couldn’t be more pleased. Thanks to everyone who came out to support Prevent Child Abuse Rowan and the Terrie Hess Child Advocacy Center. Thanks to all our volunteers. Congratulations to all the winners. We had some amazing finishes. Our sponsors make the race possible, so we would like to thank them too. We are especially grateful to the Salisbury Police Department for keeping everyone safe on the course today. We, at the Forum of Salisbury, hope that everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving and we can’t wait till next year.”
Sponsors for the event were Novant Health Rowan Medical Center, Wilco-Hess, Blast It All, Chamberlain Exterminators, Salcoa, Caniche, First Bank, Summit Development, Shulenberger Survey Co., Town of Landis, GNC, Eller Properties, Fowler Physical Therapy, Jeter Chiropractic, Europa Sports, and Merle Norman Cosmetics.
Chase Fisher was the overall winner in 16 minutes and 42 seconds with Mary Tramazzo pacing the women in 19 minutes and 6 seconds.
