4 for the Library

Barre, MA, June 19, 2010

Second annual “4 for the library” is huge success. The Barre Library Association (BLA) put on another fine race followed with food, drinks, and prizes that topped off a perfect day for a race. With the numbers of participants growing to 63 (up from 51 last year), race Director Stephanie Carpenter led the group to the starting line on Pleasant Street. With many friends, wives, husbands, children, and grandparents waiting to cheer on their dear ones to the finish line at North Park, the clock ticked. In a near 20 minutes the finish line crew of Lindsey Doherty and Brian Young prepared to record times and places of finishers as the top 2 runners came into view on Broad Street. It would not be a photo finish but if you had bet on Matt to place first you had two chances for winning. Matt Brunelle of Oakham and Fairfield College outlasted Matt Twarog of Barre . Brunelle was injured last year at Fairfield and was unable to run so he was quite excited to see how his training has been working. He set the course record with a time of 20:23 for the four mile race, so it seems his training (90 miles a week) is working. Matt Twarog, last year’s winner, tried diligently to catch Brunell and finished with a time of 21:35. In third place, and first for high school male students was Brent Andrews, a junior at Quabbin Regional High School, and member of the cross country team, followed closely by teammate Steven Tambello. Art Sheldon placed fifth and was the first in his category of over 40 male. On the women’s side Heidi Villaran a member of the cross country team at Quabbin Regional High School placed 13th overall with a time of 28:58. Villaran was the first women and high school runner across the finish line. The next female to cross the line and capture her division was Christine Sullivan of Barre. The final category was walkers. Amanda Josephson was the first female walker to cross the finish line with a time of 47:49. Her father Rodney Josephson was the first male walker to cross the line with a time of 51:39. The BLA would like to thank all the runners and walkers for their participation and sponsors without whose help this race is not manageable.
