With the temperature in the ’80s and the humidity high, Sunday morning’s Race Around The Lake seemed more a mid-summer event than a late spring one, but that was not enough to deter either runners or walkers. The record crowd eagerly lined up West Hill Road by Berkshire Hall and at the signal they took off, some intent on breaking personal records while others set off at a more leisurely pace. While the competitors set off on the 3.5 mile loop around West Hill Lake, the spectators cut across the park to position themselves at the finish line near the Field House.
For the official results of the race go to Greystone Racing’s website. Bob, NewHartfordPlus techie, shot a video of the race and he will post it shortly as soon as he’s finished processing it. In the meantime, below are photos of the race. Enjoy!
