Magill captures sixth Arnold Mills Road Race

July 4, 2012

CUMBERLAND – Add the ages of the second- and third-place finishers together and you would get 39, the age of the winner of the 44th edition of the Arnold Mills Road Race.

The individual title – achieved in 21:06, which was 13 seconds better than Rehoboth’s Twardowski and 21 seconds quicker than East Greenwich’s Tierney – represents the first for Magill since 2006.
