Rockland Reindeer Dash 5k for Toys for Tots Results
Report from Darren Winchenbach: “Such a great race today. So much positivity to share. To quote Vanessa Williams- “Go and save the best for last.” And we did. Congratulations toAlicia Costa for winning the ugliest sweater contest. Congrats to Patti Leachfor coming in 3rd for the women and setting a pr for a 4 miler. As for myself I pulled a John Elway (minus the horse face of course) and ended my season on the highest note possible. 1st place overall with a new pr of 26:32. Started out running in 5th place at a casual pace for the first 1.5 miles before turning on the jets and passing all competitors in the 2nd half to power my way to victory. This same strategy worked for Rasheed Wallace when he played in the NBA. Go at half speed in the beginning flip the power switch on in the 2nd half and save all the energy for the end. He did it and won a championship. I did it and got my 1st win in a 4 miler. Finally, thank you to all the volunteers and spectators for the help and support throughout the entire race”

We see the following publish on the Foxcroft Academy web site:
Twenty-eight runners and more than 40 walkers disregarded brutally cold conditions to participate in Foxcroft Academy’s 3rd Annual Reindeer 5K Run and Walk on the afternoon of Sunday, December 7. This year’s event was a Division 2 Key Club Project, with six Key Clubs–Foxcroft Academy, Greenville High School, Dexter Regional High School, Nokomis High School, Piscataquis Community High School, and Penquis Valley High School–working together to raise approximately $1100 for Community Santa Projects.
“It was great to see all of the Key Clubs of Division 2 bond together and work towards a common goal of helping children who are less fortunate have a Christmas,” said George Rolleston, Foxcroft Academy Key Club advisor.
Foxcroft Academy junior Gabe Piquette paced the runners with an impressive time of 19:47 while Heather Gudroe was the fastest female at 23:22.
