19th Annual GMAA Round Church Women's Run

5K and 10K
August 22, 1998
Richmond, VT

Race Directors: Andrea Houlihan, Connie Curtain, Sue McNamara
Summary: The Round Church Women's Run had its most spectacular turnout ever. In fact the large crowd, 155 participants, surprised the race directors. But what was even more special was the diversity of the participants. There were of course the familiar faces of women who run races regularly, Shari Bashaw, Karen Lang, and Betty Lacharite, to name a few, with local elite runner Sue McNamra sweeping up the 10K course in a time of 36:51. But there were also new faces. Eleven junior runners turned out for the 5K, hopefully a sign of youth interest in the sport. Erin Sullivan, 17 years old, turned in a course record time of 17:32 in the 5K. Quite a few participants reported that this was their first road race! We also had Sylvia Weiner of Canada, a 75-time marathoner and holocaust survivor, who came in as the first place veteran runner. And finally, we welcomed a visually impaired participant who ran with a guide runner. We're not sure why the race grew so dramatically this year. Was it the perfect weather? Did we advertise the race more effectively? Has word finally gotten out that this is a fun event? Probably a bit of all of the above. Personally I credit it to having three co-directors rather than just one person going it alone. Sue McNamara and Connie Curtain joined me this year in directing the race. I wish I had found them five years ago. They dove in and we divvied up the work. I could not have had two better partners! We are already planning how we will accomodate 155+ runners for 1999.
Volunteers: Annie Follett, Joe McNamara, Zeke Zucker, Bill Lorenz, Sue Scheer, Bob Bennett & Michael, Sean McGivney, Tom Curtain, Brian Clark, Randy Sightler, Mike and Don LaCharite, Andrew Becker, Charlie Windisch, Linda and Bill Everett and Clif Rivers
