The Ninth Annual Lovell OHD 5k Run is in the books! Congratulations to Silas Eastman, 18, of Chatham, NH who won for the third consecutive year with a time of 16:33 and Terry Ballou, 45, from Staten Island, won for the fourth time in five years with a time of 19:18. Both runners received a colorful vase made by Nathan Macomber, glass blower from Conway, NH.
129 runners crossed the finish line. It is always great to see family members running together and the great number of young runners who always participate. Very impressed with family friend Alfie Walker from Fryeburg! He finished 20th overall with a time of 21:39. I'm sure that in a few more years he will be running for the Fryeburg Academy cross-country team.
Next year will be the tenth year and I'm looking forward to it. A great big thank you to all of the volunteers along the course and at the finish line as well as the Oxford County Sheriff's Department and the Lovell Volunteer Fire Department.
As more pictures come in, I will post them here and on Lovell5k.com
