Costume Fest at Halloween O Five

by by Ken Gartner

Twenty runners and half a dozen walkers donned reflective vests and some donned costumes for the Halloween edition of the Coffee O Five. Andrew Hassey stormed through the night and won his first ever Coffee O Five by a good three minutes. Mr. Hassey is a member of the Falmouth High cross-country team. Mike Casso a Falmouth High harrier of long ago nabbed second with his best ever Coffee O finish. Wendy Stafford showed no ill effects from her fine finish at last weekıs Cape Cod Marathon. She was the first woman with a time of just over 37 minutes. Bob Richards must run faster in the dark, as he surprised himself with a personal best time of 39:05. Five runners donned costumes this week while the other 15 dressed up as distance runners. In the costumed division Candy Boy Bob was the fastest as he edged Old Man Sweeney by a couple of minutes. Shanghai Sharon loped home just ahead of some woman in a cat suit. Queen Joanne cracked 49 minutes with her crown in tow. In a unanimous decision by the judge, Old Man Sweeney won the best costume award. The Coffee O Five is a weekly five-mile run 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 welcome. Reflective running vests are required through the winter.
