CUMBERLAND â€“ When your intention is to win a road race, itâ€™s always helpful to have a little course knowledge before stepping foot on the starting line.
Lack of that one minor detail cost Kerwin Vega a victory at last yearâ€™s Cumberlandfest 5K. With a slight lead over Woonsocketâ€™s Corey Brunelle during the last stretch of the five-kilometer race, Vega ran past the final left-hand turn to the finish line inside Diamond Hill State Park. That miscue allowed Brunelle to quickly seize control and produce a narrow one-second win over Vega.
BRISTOL, Conn. â€“ Itâ€™s official: Chris Wright is back.
