Thanks for a Great Race!

The 41st running of the Granby Road Race on May 5 was a great success, with 173 registered runners. The day was misty and calm, with temperatures in the 50s – a great day for a run.

Congratulations to Joe Corcoran, 35, of West Hartford, the first place male winner, who finished in 39:32, and to Megan Almagro, 18, of North Granby, the first place female winner, who finished 18th overall, with a time of 44:28.

Thank you to all of our sponsors and terrific volunteers who helped keep everything running so smoothly. We’re looking forward to 2013!
