Coffee O Course Record Barely Survives

by by Ken Gartner

Kevin Gray of Walpole was in town this weekend and he took a shot at the Coffee O Five course record. The former course record holder went through three miles in 14:56, which was well under course record pace, but then tired in the homestretch. His time of 25:45 was just 13 seconds off of Tom Doodyıs course record, which was set about three years ago. Mr. Grayıs time was the second fastest time ever run on the course. He vowed to come back in a few weeks with some of his training partners to take another shot at the record and a chance to win the nonexistent course record prize. Leonard Christo nipped Brandon Dugan by just a second with a time of 31:58 to take third place. Dave Steube took fifth with a time of 32:59. Fresh off of second and third place finishes in last weekıs Johnny Kelley 10 Mile Road Race, Lynn Holmgren and Penny Christo took first and second in this weekıs Coffee-O-Five. Ms. Holmgrenıs time of 33:07 was the fastest womenıs time run on the course this year. Ms. Christo finished exactly one minute later. Kris Tholke edged Sabine Mecking for third. The Coffee O Five is a weekly five-mile road race and 2.4-mile walk, which 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 welcome to participate. Coffee Obsession generously supplies post race water to the thirsty runners.
