Twenty-seventh Annual Carlisle Road Races ­ photos by Mike Quayle

This Old Home Day saw a record for heat and humidity over these past 27 years, with temperatures in the low 80s by race time. This translated into slower times for most of the 135 runners (the third largest field ever ) who completed the two races: 40 runners competed in the 5-mile race at 7:30 a.m. (13 female), 95 in the 1-mile race at 8:30 (38 female). Presenting another challenge for the runners this year was the Maple Street bridge collapse segment, which had to be negotiated by the runners with care.
John Forelli is first to cross the finish line in the five-mile race.

John Forelli won the 5-mile race in a time of 33:08, which he jokingly referred to as "the slowest fastest time ever in this race" (course record=25:58, Tim Harte, '91). John and second-place finisher Chris Alberto (34:25) were in exactly reversed positions last year. Chris also has placed second twice before and three times since 1994. Tony Mariano, who ran the first two races as a teenager in '76 and '77, finishing third and second respectively, took 3rd place in 34:55.

Winning the women's division for the fifth time ('96,'98,'99,'01) was course record-holder Kim Ratcliffe in a time of 36:25, 9th overall. Second-place finisher, in a time of 40:16, was Karen Ringheiser, with Laurie Engdahl in 3rd place in 41:22. The youngest ever finisher in this race was 8-year-old Margaret Parson.

Joe Carpenito, last year's second- place finisher, won the men's 1-mile race with a time of 5:24. Justin Hendrickson was 10 seconds back in second place, followed by Taylor Brophy in 5:49, repeating his third-place finish of last year.

The women's division's first place finisher, in a time of 6:57, was Amelia Barnett, 9 seconds ahead of Alexandria Alberto. Katie Brown's 7:42 earned her the third place trophy.

Amelia Barnett takes first place in the female division of the one-mile race. Her father is one second behind.
Family participation was significant in both races: The Mariano family, whose participation dates back to the very first Old Home Day races in 1976, had 9 members from 3 generations running! To the best of my count there were 18 families with at least 3 members running this year: the Albertos, Boors, Careys, Clarkes, Cooks, Harrings, Hendricksons, Lotanes, Meyers, Parsons, Ratcliffes, and Verrills with 3; Barnetts, Drinkwaters, and Veitchs with 4; Forellis with 5; and the Littlefields with 6.

I want to thank Lt. Sulivan and the Carlisle Police for their superbly coordinated traffic direction and control, making both races safe for the runners, and Dori Davis for her continuing assistance as treasurer.

Since the race wouldn't be possible without the following individuals, many of whom have volunteered their time and expertise year after year, sincerest thanks go to: Susan Bondurant, Newel Cantrill, Joan Carroll-Cronin, Amy and Evelyn Caruso, Phil Conti, Jean Donnelly, Kay Edelberg, Ken & Marilyn Harte, Ellen Huber, Chuck Hughes, Alistair, Lynn and Stan Lucks, Ollie Naidich, Frederika Perry, Tom Ratcliffe and Martha Svatek. Special commendations to Sabrina Perry, who has volunteered countless hours of her time since the very first race in 1976, and especially this year, streamlining many forms and procedures, and to my son, Rand, who created a computer-based facilitation of the registration and results tabulation.

Kim Ratcliffe wins in the women's division for the fifth time.
