The Annual New Year’s Day Chilly Chili Run attracted a much smaller crowd to Orange on Monday morning, New Year’s Day, most likely due to the single digit temperature. A total of 379 registered and 288 finished the race. (In 2017, 508 registered and 479 finished).

Runners braved the 7-degree chill, and did their best to compete in the race, which supports the Amity Teen Center.

Wearing bib #1, the overall winner was Calvin Park, 22, of Trumbull, who finished the race 16:23.

This is Park’s fourth first-place victory in this race. In 2014, at the age of 18, he ran it in 16:43.36.

Orange resident Anthony Tom, 16, came in second at 17:38, followed by 23-year-old Orange resident, Dan McCabe at 18:13.

The first female finisher was Maliya Ellis, 16, at 20:39 followed by Betsy Overstrum, 15, at 20:59, and in third place, last year’s first-place female winner Bianca Lucero, 40, of New York at 21:08.

The oldest male runner in the race once again, was Herman Bershtein, 92, of Hamden, who crossed the finish line at 1:00:59, improving his 2017 finish time by 13 seconds!

And once again, the oldest female runner was Betty Holroyd, 91, of Wallingford, who finished at 59:26.

Bless each and every one of you, you have my complete and undying admiration for braving the cold today and finishing this race.

The results are now posted on Hi Tek Racing’s website.

I know that the late Carmine Negri, a long-time fan of Orange’s premiere New Year’s Day Road Race, was smiling down on today’s Chilly Chili Run as his 27-year-old daughter Victoria was the first female to cross the finish line at 21:14.92.

For the guys, Calvin Park, 18, of Trumbull led the entire pack at 16:19.15 with a pace of 5:16.

The first Orange resident, Connor Dunleavy, 19, came in third at 17:07, just .29 seconds behind Matt Klein, 19, of Trumbull.

Rounding out the top 5 men were Travis Vooten, 17, of Riverhead, NY and Daniel McCabe, 19, of Orange.

Right behind Negri was Leanne Beedle, 19, of Bethany, at 21:30.86 and behind her by 7 seconds was Annalisa Paltauf, 30, of New Haven.

Rounding out the top 5 women were Nicole Semanchik, 34, of Milford and Chelsea Krombel, 26, of Wallingford.

In the 90 and over group that George “Doc” Whitney made popular, his longtime, friendly rival Bill Tribou, 93, of Granby came in first in his category at 45:56.26, followed by Don Osborne, 92, of Branford at 64:20.15.
