Coffee Obsession Friday Night 5 Mile Race

Falmouth, MA, June 28, 2002

Malloy Takes first in Pre-wedding Run - Coffee O Celebrates 5 Years

The Coffee-O-Five celebrated its five year anniversary this Friday. There have been a few name changes along the way but nothing else has really changed in the 260 races which have been run over the past five years. It still remains a free, low-key, self-timed, run for people of all abilities who like to run. Sixty runners and another dozen or so walkers showed up this week to brave the heat and humidity. It was by far the largest turnout of the year. The last runner finished at 6:30 and the torrential down pour of rain conveniently waited until 6:45 to deluge the runners. After the run the runners and walkers and other assorted people celebrated at the first annual Coffee-O-Five pool party which was held at some poor unsuspecting club memberís house. Kara Malloy of Westord blitzed the course with a seasons best time of 31:59 and bested one of the toughest womens fields in quite a while. Ms. Malloy was in town for her wedding which was to be held on the following day. Her brother Rich Molloy took second over-all with a time of just over 30 minutes in his Coffee-O-Five debut. It was a true family affair as the father of the bride-to-be, Richard Molloy, sprinted home in under 35 minutes. He posted one of the fastest times of the year for a sixty-year-old runner. All three Molloys dashed off after the run to attend the wedding rehearsal dinner. Despite the hot humid night, Brian Nelson recorded a personal best time of 30:45. Frank Guido of South Dennis cracked the top five for his second week in a row with a fourth place finish. Nancy Correia led a pack of seven very fast women who all stormed down Walker Street shoulder to shoulder. All seven women finished within one minute of each other with times between 35 and 36 minutes. Joining the walkers this week was Eddie Doyle, one of Bostonís most well-known bartenders. The Coffee-O-Five is a weekly five mile running race which is held on Fridays at 5:30 from Town Hall Square in Falmouth. There is no entry fee and all runners invited to participate. For those who are not that fleet of foot, there is a noncompetitive 2.4 mile walk as well.
