Pittsfield Balloon Rally’s Frank H. Donovan 5K.
Congratulations to all of the participants in the Pittsfield
Balloon Rally’s Frank H. Donovan 5K. Runners and walkers
were treated to perfect weather with a cool but sunny morning,
and this year’s race saw a registration increase of 30% from
last year with 108 participants.
This included 18 Pittsfield
residents - Colby Wolfe being the top male Pittsfield runner
with a time of 21:04, with his father, Matt Wolfe of Pittsfield
at his heels with a time of 21:26.
Congratulations also to
Sarah Martin, the top Pittsfield female with a time of 22:56,
and Kathy Traynor, the second Pittsfield female to cross the
finish line with a time of 25:34.
All four runners placed in
the top three in their age groups, with Kathy placing first in
hers. Two other Pittsfield runners received awards in their age
categories: Wyatt Sinclair and Mabel Johnson, who was one of the
youngest runners to finish the course at just 10 years old!
Thank you to all of the volunteers, sponsors, and participants
who made this race possible. Mark your calendars for August 5,
2018 to walk or run and take part in this great Balloon Rally
