Thank you so much to everyone who came out Saturday (November 22nd) morning for the inaugural Beards & Beers 5k which was sponsored by MMNT-CPA’s. The event raised thousands of dollars for the Curtis D. Robinson Center for Health Equity at Saint Francis. We hope you enjoyed the course, the pizza from Wooster Street Pizza and of course the numerous beer vendors.
The men’s race was won in a very fast time of 14:58 by Samuel Alexander of Eastford. Alexander distanced himself from eventual runner-up Matt Mensher with just over a mile to go. Alexander led virtually wire-t0-wire. The women’s side was won by Erin Donahue who held a comfortable lead throughout the race and was able to put 45 seconds between her and Laura Tignonsini at the line to win in 20:30. Tignonsini set a personal best with a 21:15 clocking.
