Race Directors Report

Hello Patty’s Race Groups,
What a great day last Sunday, and a great turnout, as close to 200 people registered for the walk / run and 167 finished. If you get to see Thursday’s Lincoln news there’s some great coverage, including several pictures.
The list of Award Winners and Complete list of finishers is attached. To all of you who were supportive in any way, volunteering, sponsoring, participating, and to those of you who are away and were thinking of Patty and all of us, thank you.
The List of Award Winners was published in last Thursday’s Lincoln News. The complete list of finishers will be published in this Thursday’s Lincoln News, and a special thank you to our sponsors will come out in the following week’s Lincoln News. We’ll also e-mail to you the thank you to our sponsors.
A couple items about this year’s race:
In 64th place with a time of 39:27 is a Female in the 30-39 age group who ordered a small shirt. This finisher’s name tag was ripped and the name was completely missing. If you know who this is please let us know.
A stretchy multi colored bead bracelet / anklet was found under the registration table. If you know who it belongs to, let us know.
Again, from all of Patty’s family,
Thank you,
Mike and Robin

Ty Thurlow of Lee is the first 3 time winner of the race and blistered the course record by 1 minute and 35 seconds. His 17:40 performance this year beat the previous record of 19:15 set in 2006 by Austin Townsend. Prior to 2006 Ty held the record of 19:39 set during the first “Patricia Lynn Corbin Memorial Walk / Run” in 2003. Ty also won the race last year (2008) with a time of 19:21. Ty referred to the race as “this is Patty’s Race” in Chris Debeck’s Lincoln News post race interview with him in 2003,  and we have referred to it as “Patty’s Race” ever since.  The only other multiple winner is Drew Pickering of Lee who won in 2005 with a time of 19:42, and again in 2007 with a time of 19:29. Ty’s planning to run a marathon in Vermont next week and his Dad told me he’s been training about 80 miles a week…Phew!!!  This was his last speed training session during his marathon taper. Quite a performance!
There have been no 2 time overall winners in the female division. The female course record of 23:49 was set in 2004 by Bernie Stockley of Chester.
We’ll have the complete list of finishers (153) with times to you soon.
Award winners, complete list of finishers, and thank you to our sponsors will be in the Lincoln News and on the web site www.pattysrace.com; soon.
Thanks again,
Mike, Robin and family.

Update

Hello Patty’s Race Running Clubs Group,
Less than a week away. This coming Sunday.
Overall the course is drier than previous years, although the couple of wet spots through the woods trail behind the high school remain, and could benefit from a couple pallets to bridge them. We’ll have them covered for race day if needed. If we get a good running day, and the course remains drier, could be ripe for a new course record!
A recent new addition this year is “Peppermint Patty Ice Cream Sundaes”, (in memory of Patty), at Sandy Gifford’s “Village Ice Cream Shop” in the “Home on the Grange” near the corner of rte 6 and the Winn Rd.
Updated Race Instructions are 2009_pattys_race_instructions Registration form is on the web site www.pattysrace.com;  as is a map of the course and much more.
On behalf of Lee Academy, all the race organizers, and Patty’s family, thanks for your support.
Mike & Robin
