Runner’s times for Manchaug Pond’s The DAM Race 2015

Another great family race/walk to benefit Manchaug Pond was held this morning by the Manchaug Pond Foundation. The weather was sunny and crisp keeping runners and walkers cool and smiling on their trek along the shore of the 380 acre great pond. ¬† Manchaug Pond.¬† in all its autumn glory, was spectacular and as one spectator voiced more than once, “the hot chocolate was awesome!”

As we wait for the official race photos and yours which can be submitted here, we’ll announce our champion runners!
