Weather: sunny, calm wind, temp in the low sixties 
Race Directors: Steve and Cathy Eustis 

Summary: A perfect day greeted the 131 finishers. Hockomock Swamp Rat Ken Gartner led a 3 man pack with Josh Brown and Binney Mitchell at mile 1 in 5:19. Carole Harris had a big lead, hitting the first mile in 5:43. Josh pulled ahead to take top honors in 27:25. Jim Miller advanced up to second place in 27:35 and Ken finished third in 27:52. Carole continued to stretch her lead and finished with the women's course record time of 30:19. The race for second place was close with Sara Pope finishing ahead of Jennifer Kehoe in times of 32:48 and 32:58. Many age group records fell including M 0-13: Niall McMahon (40:36), F 0-13: Abby Mitchell (38:26), F 14-19: Sarah VanDyke (35:56), F 30-39: Carole Harris (30:19), M 50-59: Keith Woodward (28:12), and M 70-79: Don Lacharite 49:20. It was nice to see so many young runners, particularly the girls aged 0-13.

Jim Howley was the only 2003 runner that ran that finished the first Archie Post race back on September 6, 1969 (33 finishers in the first race). Three people (Jim Howley, Chuck Arnold, ?) had Archie Post as a coach. Ralph Swenson commemorated the event by running in his mid-70s racing outfit -> original GMAA singlet and orange nylon shorts, complete with original sneakers. Ralph apparently never throws anything away! Many members of the Post family came to the race, including his wife Persis and daughters Jean and Dorothy. Grandchild Jeff Stevens ran the race. One grandchild came from Arizona to watch the race!

I would especially like to thank two people: Larry Kimball for writing such a great story on the race as well as Archie Post for the August Vermont Sports Today and Joe Gringas for digging through the UVM cross country archives (a formidable task!) to locate past Archie Post results from the 70s. Volunteers: Phil Ades, Russ Agne, John Barbour, John Brennan, Laura Bresee, Bob and Monica Cayia, Norman Crete, Sandra Dickin, Linda Everett, Dot Helling, John Izzo, Betsy Lord, Andrew Mack, Tom Nuovo, Tom Rhoads, Todd Silk, Karen and Tyler Sperry, Phil and Elizabeth Trent, and John Williams Thanks to: Ski Rack, Woman's Source for Sports, and Paul Mazza's Farm Stand for donated and/or discounted prizes and refreshments.
