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 tradition!
