2011 – RECORD TURNOUT

Posted by on Jul 6, 2011 in John Carson Road Race |

Well so much for the heat keeping folks on the couch and off the streets of Chelmsford.  Despite warm temperatures and a rather humid day, over 2000 registered and 1934 completed the 2 mile course.  No records were set although I am sure that no 40 year old woman has ever finished in second place with a time of 11:48 while being seven months pregnant…congratulations Kara Haas ( I had felt good about finishing in 12:34 until I heard that).

We will use a...

Chelmsford — For Mike Maniscalco it means a reunion with his lifelong friends John Burrows and Mark Luxemburger, who he lived with in the 1980s in Los Angeles when they worked for an L.A. based airline PEOPLExpress. In 2003 Maniscalco invited Burrows and Luxemburger travel from their Ohio and Pennsylvania homes with their families to his Chelmsford house for the Fourth of July weekend. The three families began a tradition of running the road race. The race has propelled the three couple’s...
