20th Annual Wachusett Mountain Race

Princeton, MA, May 26, 2012

Overall

Central Mass Striders

                                                                                                           
20th Wachusett Race Summary

The 20th running of the Wachusett Road/Trail race was held on a hot and humid May 26th. This year's
race was the second year in a row that the distance was 4.7 with the race finishing down the MidState
trail to the Lodge Parking Lot. The race was won by Brandon Newbold of Nottingham, NH and Whirlaway
Running Club in a time of 29:01, 7 seconds off last year's winning time and course record of 28:54 set by
CMS's Jim Johnson. The women's race was won by Joanie Bohke of Waltham in a time of 36:20.

This year we had 226 finishers compared to last year's 308 so we were a bit off our usual numbers.
Maybe it was the hot day and maybe too many people are in training for the Worcester Half and Full
Marathons next week.

Future plans for this race are up in the air. There is always the looming question of "Will the race return
to the top of the mountain?" or will the race stay like this, or even change again. Hopefully the CMS
board will look at this race closely to determine the best course of action.

This year's race went off smoothly and on-time with no problems encountered during the race. CMS
encountered a few snags pre-race day but were able to pull together and produce a great race. The race
director is extremely grateful to the outpouring of support from the CMS folks with over 40 volunteers
helping out. I have to single out a few people who always come thru: Rich Lemerise with race setup,
organization and pottie-mover; Karen Lemerise with race-day and pre registration duties; Joe Alfano
with truck pick up, timing, scoring, truck loading, and everything else he does. There are other key
players but these three individuals make things happen!

The volunteers were: Nick Popiak, Dave Krom, Jack Goolsky (porto-pottie mover), Roxanne Robert, Jim
Sicard, Jan McNamara, Joe O'Connor, Kate Madrigal, Stu Kravitz, Dave Mingori, Joanne Lachappelle, Alice
McKeon, Megan Therriault, Neil Lacey, Alissa Zbikowski, Jen and Pete Hogan, Scott Janssens, Anthony Cali,
Julie Tamanaco, John and Karen Pajer, Ray Anair, Bruce Gobi, Mike Keating, Jennifer McKenzie, Stephen
Drouin, Kevin Edmands, Kathy Comer, Connie Cassarino, Kerri Conte, Susan Leo, Jon Ambold, Joanne Bedard,
Bill Ferrara, Scott Lauer and Dick Hunt (The Sweeper). The RD apologizes if anyone was missed.

Thanks
John Grenier
2012 Wachusett Mountain Race Director
