2012 Mission Possible 5K Race

by Paul Saulnier
November 4, 2012

November 4, 2012. Holliston High School. If turning the clocks back caused runners to miss the 10:30 AM start time, it did not appear to thin out this crowd of 5Kers anxious to pick 'em up and put 'em down.

For a clearer picture, click on the gear (bottom right) and change the quality from 360 to 720HD.

The registration area was extrememly busy with runners anxious to support the Mission Possible goal of funding a replacement playground at Miller School, as they had done at Goodwill Park.

Mission Possible President, Stephanie Collier, above with Representative Carolyn Dykema, said that 25% of of the proceeds of today's race will go directly to the Miller Playground fund.

 

Pat Rourke, above left, Math Specialist for pre-K through Grade 5, is among the many school employee volunteers for the event. With Pat is Placentino Principal Linda Weene, in full race mode.

This year the race included two wheel chair entries. Laura Dennison, above, of Framingham, and Emma Harrington, below, a Holliston fifth grader with her parents, Paul and Beth.

Laura and Emma were the first to leave, two minutes ahead of the crowd.

First to cross the finish line was Laura Dennison in her racing chair with a time of 17 minutes, 21 seconds.

The first runner to finish was Keiron Tumbleton of Hopkinton one second behind Laura. Keiron's wife, Maureen, was the first female to finish the race.

Next was Steve Levandosky, also of Hopkinton, 22 seconds later. Why does it seem that Hopkinton runners are faster than everyone else?

Third place went to Glenn Miller of Uxbridge (finally someone not from Hopkinton) with a time of 17 minutes, 57 seconds.

With a time of under 22 minutes, this kid looked like he just race 100 yards.

After the leaders completed the race, the remaining racers began crossing the finish line in rapid succession.

Melinda Smith crossed the finish line with ease, although she was minutes behind her daughter Olivia, competing in her first race. Way to go, Liv!

Principal Weene finished in a respectable 28 minutes, 5 seconds.

If you didn't get a chance to run this year, here is the map of the race. Start practicing. Maybe next year HollistonReporter.com will show you laying waste to the competition from Hopkinton.
