Turkey Flats 2020

Conditions were wonderful for the 2020 edition of the Turkey Flats Trail Run. The weather was cool and calm. Weeks of dryness meant a mud-free and mosquito-free run but it reduced the wildflowers and made it quite dusty. The race used an interval start to comply with COVID-19 distancing guidelines so single runners were launched every 10 seconds. Runners liked the relaxed first mile finding their own rhythms rather than being constrained in a pack but it made it harder to know exactly where each stood competition-wise as the race progressed. Winner Peter Byers didn't really have to worry as he moved to the front and put a nice gap on everybody. Ashleigh Gardner, coming off an excellent high school running career and heading to college down under in Australia, easily out-paced the other women.
