Jo Ann Day crosses the finish line and guessed closest to her time in the women's division during last Saturday's Turkey Time Race.

Blue skies greeted more than 30 runners who participated in this year's Turkey Time 5K race.

Winners of last Saturday's event guessed closest to their finish time rather than finished the fastest.

Runners weren't allowed to carry watches, phones or any device that would allow them to guess or tell the time. The finishing timer also faced away from the runners and they crossed the finish line under the basketball court outside of the community gym.

Eleven runners guessed within a minute of their time and won a $5 Hammer & Wikan grocery store gift certificate.

There was a youth, woman and men's division. The winner in each division won a $75 dollar gift certificate from Hammer & Wikan to purchase a turkey dinner.

Easton Jacobsen took first in the youth division guessing within 36 seconds of her 35:36 run time.

Jo Ann Day guessed within 20 seconds of her 28:24 run time.

Karl Hagerman guessed the closest; eight seconds within his 26:21 run time.

Second and third place winners also won gift certificates.
