The skies were clear in the afternoon. The roads were dry and a new course record was set in downtown Waterbury. The St. Vincent DePaul Mission of Waterbury puts on a tremendous event to raise much needed funds in order to help people. Ryan O'Connor didn't need any help as he opened up the first mile in 5:24. It took him almost the entire first mile to reel in the 15-year old speedster, Demetre Carnot. This is O'Connor's 4th overall victory in his short, 2-year, running career. Congratulations to all the runners, walkers, spectators, volunteers, and organizers. Thank you to all, and especially the sponsors. We appreciate your support. Results are posted!
The rain let up and the runners set out. Sherwood Island State park is the home of the September 11th Memorial here in Connecticut. It's a beautiful park with scenic views of Long Island and the sound. The wind was a challenge in spots. The rain wasn't much of a factor other than it made some of the sections along the course slick with fallen leaves. Alvaor Sanchez Lopez lead the entire race follwed by Carlos Sanchez Lopez in second place. It was tracey Doucette (just a few place behind Jim Doucette) in 9th place overall for the women's victory.
