Here's a report from Race Director and Founder, Rick Konon:

Stephen Herrera, 36 of Waterford was the overall menís winner, and Kelly Bergeron, 19 of 
Wallingford was the overall womanís winner. Recent snow and freezing rain made the course 
one of the most challenging Colchester Halfís in recent memory, making Steve and Kellyís 
efforts even more impressive. 

A record 213 runners completed this yearís race. I addition to the many local runners, 
runners came from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and 
North Carolina. Temperatures of 16 degrees at the start, bright, warming sun with a 
consistent light breeze, greeted this yearís champions. If you havenít run this race 
before, you need to know that everyone that completes this tough race is a champion. 
Temperatures rose to 30 degrees by the time the last champion crossed the finish line. 
Joe Balavender completed his 16th Colchester Half Marathon, the only runner to have run 
every one. Austin Konon, 14 years old, was again the youngest finisher completing his 
second Colchester Half. The youngest female finisher was Phoebe Gaston of Wilton who ran 
a very impressive 1:58.39.
