IMG_1007The weather was cold, wet and raw for the Cohen and Wolfe Cinco K De Mayo Road Race when it stepped off at 10 a.m. on Sunday May 1. But that didn’t stop dozens of die-hard runners from pushing themselves to the brink to cross the finish line.

This year’s overall winner, Jeffrey Townsend, 44, of Woodbridge, a familiar name at Orange races, kept up a 6:05 minute pace to cross the line first at 18:56.

He was followed by two other 40-somethings about 30 seconds later: Scott Kaplanka, 40, of Ansonia, at 19:31 and Roland Beaudette, 46, of Orange, at 19:36.

Orange’s Mason Beaudette, 12, finished 1 minute and 16 seconds after his dad at 20:52, placing first in his age group.

Alicja Stannard, 34, was the first female finisher at 21:00.
