Abby Kendall and Gary Kutscher had no worries about shopping for their Thanksgiving Day dinner.

As overall female and male winners of last weekend's Turkey Trot 5K Walk/Run, the pair received Butterball turkeys from the Town Parks and Recreation Department, which sponsored the race.

Held at Green Valley Park, the run drew 53 entrants, but it was Kendall and Kutscher who dominated the proceedings.

Kutscher, a veteran of several marathons, including Boston, easily won the men's competition by touring the 3.1-mile course in 19:53.

Among the female runners, Kendall -- a local fitness instructor -- won in 22:40.

Town Recreation Coordinator Beth Kreider said the race turned out to be popular with women in the 40-years-plus age group. Of the 30 females who participated, 15 were over age 40.
