THis race raised over $300 for the Kennebec Messalonskee Trail Association
in support of developing walking, hiking and cycling trails throughout the
Dear Fellow Central Maine Striders and specifically Eric Thomas, David & Linda Benn,
Jon Chapin, Ron Paquette, Donna Jean Pohlman, David Colby Young, Erik Seastead,
Keith Curtis, Dick Miles, Julie Millard, Keith Bowles, Michael F. Brooks, Doug Brooks,
and Gust Stringos,
Thank you for your help in my first attempt at directing the new Joseph's race on the trails.
Your show of support by volunteering and/or running makes it likely for me to agree to
try it again next year. I believe I learned a lot (like the importance of a chute
and/or tongue depressors to keep track of finish places) and I have already made notes
for improvements for the race next year.
The event raised a total of $432 for the Kennebec-Messalonskee Trail Association.
It was gratifying to see the positive response to the run and to hear the comments
about how nice the trail was for running. The remnants of the hurricane held off for us too.
I also want to again mention the wonderful sponsorship from Joseph's Clothing &
, Hannaford, The Apple Farm, Sonny's Pizza, & Fairfield House of Pizza, and Yankee Trophy.
The course proved to be a winner, and we'll plan to make this race/fundraiser an
annual event. Just imagine how nice it will be when runners can run across the
river and back to the Community Center for a loop!
While I didn't find any joy in directing the race (in fact it was quite stressful),
I am pleased to have had the opportunity to promote running. Without the stress
endured by race directors there would be no races! Those of you who volunteered
did your part and saved me from falling flat in this first attempt. I am most appreciative.
