Drizzly and cool weather didn't stop 294 entrants from racing in the Turtle Fest Road Race, in fact, the drizzle added to the numbers of entrants.


"I was hoping for 270," said Race Organizer Jim Wallin. "You just don't know and weather has a lot to do with it. We had perfect conditions to run. Runners that are really good runners would rather run in those cloudy conditions than sunshine."
