IRONVILLE Lee Berube tuned up for his senior cross country season at Ticonderoga High School by winning the annual Heritage Day 10K road race in Ironville Aug. 19.
Berube, who finished second in the state Class D cross country championships last fall, covered the rugged 6.2-mile course in 36 minutes, 15 seconds.
His brother, Jesse, a cross country runner at SUNY-Geneseo, took second place in 40:11.
Colleen Delacore won the womens race in 49:41.
Julie Cunningham was second in 50:01.
Starting and finishing near the museum, the course covers country roads, about half of them dirt. The first four miles are up and down with a very fast two-mile downhill finish.
The race was held in conjunction with the annual Heritage Day celebration at the Penfield Homestead Museum. Following the race runners were invited to attend Heritage Day festivities. Activities included Champlain Valley bluegrass music, free oxen and pony rides, a craft fair and demonstrations of weaving, candlemaking and blacksmithing as well as a chicken barbecue.
The Heritage 10K is sponsored by the LaChute Road Runners Club of Ticonderoga along with the Penfield Homestead Museum.
