On behalf of the Bennington Road Race steering committee, I would like to express my appreciation for the excellent coverage that was provided for our event by the Banner. In spite of some less than perfect weather, we had over 260 runners this year and the usual fine turnout of spectators.

Many thanks to our lead sponsor, SVMC Orthopaedics, and the 36 other businesses and individuals who provided donations. Special thanks also to Dr. Judy Orton for again donating the awards.

The net proceeds will be donated to the Zemianek scholarship fund at the high school and to Girls On the Run.

It was our honor and privilege this year to dedicate the race to the late Gail Harwood, a woman who provided the community with inspiration as a teacher and a runner.

Lastly, thanks to all of our hard-working volunteers who make this event possible, and the Park McCullough House for providing a beautiful location for the race.
