DEFENDS HIS MASTERY OF MARLBORO ROAD RACE
cleared at Ghiloni Park in Marlboro and at race time 36 runners completed the
sunny, beautiful, yet challenging Laborious Labor Day Ten Miler through the
back streets of Marlboro and Hudson. Sponsored by Highland City Striders,
Marlboro High Track Teams and the Marlboro Recreation Department, this unique
race benefited the Marlborough Food Pantry, Unlike most of the local road
races, this race had no entry fee; however, race director Mark Vital suggested
that runners donate can goods for the pantry. Thanks to the generosity of those
who competed; over 300 donated can goods will help fill the pantry's
shelves that feed the community's most needy.
record holder Scott Leslie from Rutland, took the field out fast and never
looked back. Scott won by almost eight minutes over Gary Cattarin from
Marlboro, with a blistering time of 61.00 flat. Believe it or not, Scott's
amazing time was slightly over a minute slower than his best set last year at
The Tough Ten Mile Turkey Trot. Elaine Debitetto from Stow placed as the first
female in a respectable time of 74.14.
race on the schedule for the Highland City Striders is the Marlboro Main Street
