2011 Dam Trail Race, 10-mile

Oxford, MA, August 6, 2011


Central Mass Striders

    The usually annual DAM Trail race was held on a hot and humid Saturday in Oxford, MA.
This year's event was once again a fund raising event for the French River Connection.

The long race was shortened a bit this year to 10.5 Miles and the winner for the 2nd year
in a row was Jim Johnson with a wonderful time of 1:04:31. The first female was Ashley
Krause with a time of 1:22:27. This race has 81 participants this year which is a little
above average. The race course was dry and dusty and in excellent condition.

The shorter race of 5.5 miles was won by 15-year old Braden Mungeam of Douglas MA. His
time was 40:39. The first female in the short race was Sara Smiarowski with a time of
49:05. There were 32 runners in this year's race. Other notable division winners were
Joe Alfano who finished 2nd in the short race and first in the open division and Jack
Goolsky who came in first in the over 50 group.

Both races featured some dirt, scraped knees, bloody shirts and very sweaty bodies.
This year's event was part of a weekend of racing at Hodges Village Dam in Oxford MA.

Some pictures were taken during the race and they are available for viewing at
