VSGA Runners Finish Strong in NSB 5K

Once again VSGA was proud to partner with Northfield Savings Bank (NSB) and the Central Vermont Runners for the 40th Anniversary running of the Northfield Labor Day Weekend 5K Road Race. This race kicks off the popular 3-day Northfield Labor Day Celebration and this year also raised money for the Vermont Food Bank – NSB contributes $5 for each race registrant to this good cause.

Twenty-eight runners, ranging in age from 51 to 86, including 10 women and 18 men enjoyed almost ideal running conditions on this fun course that starts hard (long uphill) and ends fast. Allen Mead not only one the VSGA Men’s 50-54 Gold medal, he was the top finisher overall. Dot Martin clinched the Women’s 55-59 Gold and was the second woman to finish overall. Congratulations to all these inspiring athletes. You can see the race results here. More photos are available on the VSGA Facebook page.
