LOVELL — New competitors joined familiar race veterans as the Lovell Old Home Days 5K had one of its largest fields ever this past Saturday morning.

Posting a time of 15:38, Silas Eastman, 19, of Chatham, N.H. won for the fourth consecutive year, but not without a challenge.

Tim Livingston, 40, from Conway, N.H. stayed within a couple of steps of Eastman, finishing with a time of 15:42. After the race, Tim declared, “Youth won out.”

Livingston’s sister, Terry Ballou, 46, of Madison, N.H., was top among female runners. Winning the women’s division for the sixth time in seven years, Ballou’s time of 19:03, was seventh best overall.

Both Eastman and Ballou received awards designed by Conway glassblower, Nathan Macomber.

Cheering spectators lined Main Street, Route 93 and Smarts Hill Road to see the diverse group of runners on a picture perfect day.

Sheri Pratt, 36, of Lovell received big rounds of applause from supporters as she completed her first-ever 5K.

Colton McCarthy, eight, of Lovell finished third in the 15 and under age group category with his impressive time of 28:07.

Youngest among the field of 131 finishers was six-year-old Cassidy Strange of Sweden while the oldest runner was Richard Dam, 86, of Bridgton.

As always, Fryeburg Academy was well-represented with many students, past and present.

Race proceeds are evenly split between the Lovell Recreation Department and the Old Home Days Parade.

The event would not be possible without the generous support of the following sponsors: Norway Savings Bank, Midtown Marketing Services, Muddy Moose Restaurant, Bennett Transportation, Bliss & Associates, Harvest Gold Gallery, Michael Friedman, Esq., Doyle Antiques, JB Storage, Chet Rogers, Thurston Home Builders, Drew Corporation, Dr. N. Scott Ferguson, North Conway Dental Associates, Rosie’s Lovell Village Store, Bob the Screenprinter and Kezar Realty.

Poland Spring and Rosie’s all contributed to the post-race refreshments.

The AMC, Saucony Shoes, Stow Corner Store, Lake Kezar Country Club, Kezar Lake Marina and the Pirate’s Cove Golf provided wonderful prizes for the random awards.

“A big thank you goes to the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office, the Lovell Volunteer Fire Department and to the many volunteers providing support along the course. A special acknowledgment must be extended to the Lovell Old Home Days Committee for the outstanding job done in putting together not only a first-rate parade but a great show at the Athletic Field,” race director Stan Tupaj said,
