As with the winds that blew, ninety-eight 5 to 12 year olds all swept to the finish at this year’s Youth Trophy Cup Runs race festival. The skies were dramatic and so were the finishes, effort and performances. The rapid-fire succession of eight cross-country races were on Sunday of Fall Weekend, October 8th. It was the 21st year of the HF Community Program’s running celebration just for HF-L youth.

There was one course record on the day and several near misses. The record was Breck Masters in the run for 6 year olds. His 1:29.8 record must have been especially satisfying, as it topped the 1:32 record set by his sister, Brooklyn, the previous year. Brooklyn faired great again this year, stepping up to the longer course for 7 year olds and capturing third place in 3:33.
Near misses were Liam Dailor in the 7 year old run. His 3:15.5 was just 1.5 seconds short of Linden Bellizzi’s record time. For 8 year olds, Grady Goodberlet was only 3.5 seconds off of Joshua Vogt’s 2011 record of 3:11.

Many high school athletes, from the HF-L running teams and other sports, volunteered to help make the event extra fun for all participants. The water, apples and balloons donated by Honeoye Falls Market-Place were enormously appreciated by all runners. Pizza, donated by Salvatore’s Old Fashioned Pizzeria, was an especially tasty treat and a well-earned post-race reward. John Price’s local office of Edward Jones and Molye Chevrolet provided generous financial contributions to the event, as did the Honeoye Falls branch of M&T Bank. Branch Manager, Cybil Brock, and her branch colleagues rolled up their sleeves on race day as race volunteers, as well.
