What is new this year is the 1st Annual "Berry Classic" Road Race. Forty-five entries were on hand for the starting line at 7:30am this morning. The weather was a comfortable 76 degrees with overcast skies. Winners on the male side of this event were David Beauley of New Boston, #43 with a race time of 34 minutes and 7 seconds for 1st place.

Runners had positive feelings about the course saying it was a rolling course at times and a good run overall. Many remarked that they would definitely return next year. Timing was provided by Granite State Race Services, www.gsrs.com. Of note, one entrant from Sun City, Arizona, Suzanne Boisclair came in with a 27th place finish, the most distant runner in today's entry field.
The Goffstown Historical Society also had their Annual Berry Fest today with an open house offering Strawberry Short Cake, Pizza, a variety of salads and beverages. Children had a great time enjoying the bounce house outdoors and also were surprised at the large HO train set up at the rear of the museum. Without the dedication of volunteers and sponsors, this event would not have been possible. Many thanks given by the folks at the Goffstown Historical Society, "see you next year".
