Course records - Part 2

Here are what I consider to be the top records I had that were still a record when the race stopped being held.

07/22/84 East End Club 5m - 24:26, this record held for 23 years then the race folded (2007).

09/13/87 NEAC 5km (Couple race) - 14:08 This Concord, NH race was a double loop in an Industrial park. Not sure when they stopped having it.

02/19/89 Tewksbury 10m - 50:03. I ran the entire way alone then caught this old guy and a kid who were doing the shorter race. The picture in the paper made it look like I was out-kicking them (I was kicking hard to break 50).

06/11/89 Nipmuck trail ½ marathon - 1:29:37. The record held for about 10 years then they stopped holding the half. I still hold the full marathon record.

10/16/93 Laconia DARE 10km - 29:49. I won by about a mile, racing alone from start to finish. Not sure how many years it was held.

11/17/96 Run Your Turkey Off 15 km - 46:36. I think this was only held for 2 or 3 years.

05/08/99 Mt Kearsarge 8.5m - 51:02. This is probably the best mountain record I had, it was the only one that Morse did not break.


10/08/00 Chancellor's challenge 100km - 6:46:39. They only held this one three or four times and I may have run in the final one.

Who are you calling old? Nice job at Great Bay.

I should have said "older gentleman".
