Newton, Linder are Townshend's 5K winners

Posted
TOWNSHEND — On Saturday, runners and walkers of all ages assembled on the Townshend Common for the eighth annual Grace Cottage Spring into Health 5K. A record number participated with 163 registered and 138 crossing the professionally timed finish line. The early season, family-friendly event is intended to encourage healthy outdoor activity. Proceeds from the event benefit the Grace Cottage Patient Care Fund.

Lucas Newton and Elkanah Linder, both of Townshend, were the first male and female to cross the finish line respectively. Sylvia Kinney was the "Most Experienced" participant. Not all participants were in it for the competition; many chose to simply walk the course in support of Grace Cottage.

People's United Bank was the event's primary sponsor; Cota & Cota fueled the runners with water; River Bend Farm Market supplied fresh fruit; and Drew's All Natural Salsa, Big Picture Farm, and Smith Family Maple contributed prizes for the event. In addition to acknowledging the generous contributions of the event sponsors, Grace Cottage wishes to extend thanks to WKVT radio, the Vermont State Police, Rescue Inc., the Townshend Congregational Church, and the Townshend Select Board for their support of the event.
