Kevin Collins wins National Masters 10k

Kevin Collins, (41, Syracuse Track Club) won his first National Masters Championships at the James Joyce Ramble 10k in Dedham, MA on Sunday, April 28th. This unique event has been described as where the "prose hits the road" as approximately two dozen costumed actors read the works of James Joyce aloud along the race route. Six works are featured, beginning with "Finnegan's Wake," to "Ulysses," to "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man," "Exiles," "Dubliners," and, finally in the last mile, "The Dead." Kevin wasn't listening and was all smiles at the finish as his workmanlike 32:48 effort topped the elite Masters' field by 20 seconds on the tough rolling hills course that started and finished at the grand Endicott Estate outside the picturesque town of Dedham. The Genesee Valley Harriers Masters teams brought home two 2nd place (W40+ and W60+) and one 3rd place (M60+) team trophies on the beautiful, sunny, 70 degree day.
