Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Get out your run­ners for the 13th an­nual five kilo­me­ter BorderFest run, tak­ing place this Satur­day morn­ing to kick off Stanstead’s an­nual BorderFest. Run­ners of all ages (there are nine age cat­e­gories go­ing from twelve and un­der to eighty and older) come from near and far to com­pete for medals and prizes in this pop­u­lar race that brings run­ners through his­toric Stanstead and onto the recre­ational trail through the woods. The run­ners fin­ish where they be­gin, at the Stanstead Town Hall on Duf­ferin Street.

Will any­one beat the race’s long-stand­ing course records this year? The times to beat are: 15.26 (male), the time of Fran­cois Me­nard-Kil­rane in 2008; and 19.14 (fe­male), the time set by Mary-Lou But­ter­field in 2010.

Race reg­is­tra­tion takes place be­tween 8:15 am and 9:15 am, in the Stanstead Col­lege gym­na­sium on Duf­ferin Street, just be­fore the race on July 5th. The race be­gins at 9:30 am. For additional in­for­ma­tion call Michael Sud­low at 819 876-5378.
