Rockport — About 24 hours after the Midcoast experienced one of its coldest Thanksgiving Days in memory, a bundle of bundled-up hardy souls braved frigid temperatures — and a wind-chill in the single-digits — as well as icy road conditions on Friday morning, Nov. 23 to participate in the 12th annual Penobscot Bay YMCA-hosted "Turkey Trot" 5-kilometer road race/walk.

Scott Layton, 42, of Rockport finished first in 17:53, as he outdistanced runner-up Keith Drago, 31, of Rockport, who crossed the finish line in 18:24.

Julienna Brooks, 25, of Keene, N.H. was the first women finisher, sixth overall, in 20:55.

Layton finished with a per-mile time of 5:46, Drago 5:56 and Brooks 6:44.

Runners and walkers shrugged off the cold conditions to make the 3.1-mile jaunt around the streets of Camden and Rockport.

The race, which included more than 180 registrants and 120 who actually finished the cold course, started on Limerock Street in Camden and ended in the YMCA parking lot in Rockport.

"It was cold, but super fun," said Theo Berez, YMCA fitness director and race director.

Many participants wore hats, mittens, gloves, leggings, sweat pants, vests, jackets, scarfs and sunglasses to ward off the bitterly cold, but sunny conditions. Summer road race attire — shorts and t-shirts — were a rare sight.

Some wore festive holiday attire with lots of turkey dressings.

Despite the cold conditions, all burned a bundle of Thanksgiving Day calories during their morning trek.
