Manchester Mile record-breaker hopes for more
Gagnon, 26, broke his own course record by winning Wednesday night’s third annual Hinckley Allen Manchester Mile in 3 minutes, 42.97 seconds.
Gagnon, 26, was born and raised in Lowell, Mass., but currently lives in New Jersey. He said his best mile time on a track is 3:57:00.
Like Gagnon, Traynor is a member of the New Jersey/New York Track Club.
“To run under 4:30 was my goal. I wasn’t sure what a reasonable goal was, but I had that in my mind. I’m definitely happy with my time. It’s nice to have the guys to run behind.”
“It’s a unique draw and it brings out a very high-level, competitive runner,” Mortimer said. “It also draws someone who isn’t really a runner who says, ‘One mile? Downhill? I can do that.’It’s a good way to kick-start a fitness and wellness routine.”
“I ran in the Millennium Mile and it didn’t go quite the way I wanted, so I wanted the chance to redeem myself,” said Yoder, who finished fifth in 4:06:11. “Not a lot of hills in Kansas.”
Sandown’s Louis Saviano, who is one semester shy of graduating from UNH, finished first in the 5K. He completed the course in 15:48.
“Anytime you win a race it’s pretty awesome,” Saviano said. “I wanted to win this and then see what I could do in the mile.”
“Since graduating from UNH I’ve continued to run — mostly marathons,” Burnham said. “I’m not very fast.
