Large Fast Field at Coffee O Five

by by Ken Gartner

Itıs summer time in Falmouth and that brought out the largest Coffee O Five field of the year and also one of the fastest over-all fields in quite some time. Fifty-six runners and half a dozen walkers took part in this weekıs festivities. Two old 43-year-old guys led the field at just over five and a half minute per mile pace. Bill Solimine showed he is fully recovered from a long battle with a knee injury as he won the race with a time of 27:36, which was the second fastest time posted this year. Mel Gonsalves, a former Falmouth running ace, broke out of his semi-retirement and took third place with a time of 28 minutes and change. Eric Critzer, a current Falmouth running ace, loped home in fourth with a time of 29 minutes. Stephen Roe out-distanced Mike Oumet for fifth. Lynn Holmgren bested Jess Baker as she chalked up another Coffee O victory. Ms. Holmgrenıs time of 32:42 was a personal best and also the fastest womenıs time posted this year. Sharon Napier took third in just a shade over 40 minutes. Eileen Miskell edged Joanna York for fourth place in the womenıs race. After the race many of the hot, thirsty, and hungry runners flocked over to the second annual Coffee O Five summer pool party and cookout. The Coffee O Five is a weekly five-mile road race and 2.4 mile walk that is held every Friday night at 5:30 from Town Hall Square in Falmouth. There is no entry fee for this self-timed event and all runners and walkers are invited to participate.
