NEW TROY — A different kind of Run to the Center of the World took place Saturday, Oct. 24, in New Troy.

 

A total of 55 people participated in the ninth annual event, which included 5K runs and walks along with a half-marathon race. Although about a dozen of them hit the road after Scott Vines fired the starting cannon at 8 a.m., many others crossed the start/finish line over the next hour or so since staggered starts were part of the COVID-19 adjustments made to the event.

 

These also included: Breakfasts were pre-packed and included in a bag with race shirt and bib; there was no awards ceremony (certificates will be sent by mail); masks were required everywhere but on the course.

The competing chilis were provided by area restaurants including Mesa Luna (two varieties), Greenbush, the Peasant’s Pantry, Metal Munchiez, and an anonymous restaurant.  (continue reading)
