Northfield Summer Road Race Series

Northfield, MA, June 21, 2012

Welcome Summer - Race #3

The third race in the weekly Northfield Summer Road Race Series won last night by Grant Gonzalez. His time of 19 minutes 51 seconds bested a field of twenty-three who showed up despite of the heat. The theme of the race was fittingly "Welcome Summer" and all the runners sported sunglasses for the 3.3 course. Grant was followed by Clint Joslyn (21:11) and Dave Kaczenski (21:22) came in third. Robin McKean (27:23) won for the women, followed by Cassendra Bigelow (27:58) and Sarah Kaczenski (28:11). Mikey Browning won the kids' fun run. The theme for next week's race is "Reading is Exercise for the Brain." For this race the course will have an added loop through the Dickenson Memorial Library. Entering the front door of the library the runners will go up the central stairway, down the back steps, and out the back door where they will rejoin the normal race route. The Northfield Summer Road Race Series is held every Thursday beginning and ending at Northfield Coffee & Books (105 Main St.). Start time is 6:30pm. Walkers can begin at 6:00pm. Entry is $3 with a maximum charge of $5 per family. High school cross-country team members run for free.
