July 4, 2011

CUMBERLAND — Chris Magill has had a history of top-three finishes at the Arnold Mills Road Race, an event he’s won a record five times.
The 38-year-old former St. Raphael Academy standout had every intention to make an attempt at a sixth crown in the 43rd edition of the Cumberland race Monday morning.
Those thoughts, however, were quickly erased after the first mile.

July 4, 2011

CUMBERLAND — He only weighs 39 pounds and stands about 47 inches tall.
When he was lined up at the start of the Arnold Mills Road Race on Monday, it was easy to overlook the fact that Jack Casey was among the field of more than 500 runners.
Once the race opened up near the mile mark on Abbott Run Valley Road, the eight-year-old Cumberland tyke certainly became noticeable, making more than a few heads turn in the four-mile event.
Casey, an elementary student at Community School, finished the race with an eye-popping time of 29 minutes, 29 seconds – a 7:22 per-mile pace!
