Northshore Medical Center Turkey Trot 8K Run/Walk
Sunday, December 6, 2020

Not even road congestion created by swarms of Christmas tree hunters could stop Domico Watson cruising to victory in the Northshore Medical Centre Turkey Trot 8K road race.
Demonstrating remarkable energy as he chalked up his second race of the weekend, Watson, 28, made his intentions clear from the start as he set the pace with Moses Mufandaedza and Iziah Tucker in close company.
The race competitors found themselves with an unexpected line of early morning spectators on North Shore Road, near the Empire Grocery store, who were waiting to purchase Christmas trees. There was also a police presence to control traffic congestion in the immediate vicinity.
Watson took the unusual scene it in his stride and stuck to the task. His relentless pace of 5 min 42 sec miles left him with only Mufandaedza for company by the time the final mile was reached. Watson, who had finished third overall among the adult men in the National Cross Country Championships the previous day, showed no signs of fatigue as he pulled away to win 28 mins 19 secs.
