Flat-Top 5 K 2007

The Flat Top 5K was started in the memory of Bill Pinkham, an avid runner who collapsed and died following a road race in Bangor on July 4, 2005. Bill was Lamoine's Harbor Master, and his family and running friends worked with the Lamoine Parks Commission to start the race in his memory. This year's race, the first of the 2007 season, was held on March 31, 2007

Truly a family event - the littlest racer was this young person in a leopard suit. At right, Matt Hougan is all grins with his newborn.
   
Many thanks to the registration ladies
Connie Wallace pins on Ivy's number - Grampa would be so proud
Race day was sunny, but cold. The start of the race was in front of the Lamoine Consolidated School on State Route 184. Many thanks to the Hancock County Sheriff's Department, Maine Marine Patrol, and County Ambulance who provided a safe route for our runners.
The 5K race took runners from the School to Shore Road, down to about Moose Run, and then back up Shore Road to Lamoine Beach Road and past the fire station to the school.
