Napper Tandy’s Top Flyer: Andrew Holmes

by EJN Comments (0) Articles, Racing

The Napper Tandy Flyer 4 miler was over just after it started. Andrew Holmes took off from the line on Thursday night like a man possessed. Andy was finally back at it after quite a stretch of down time due to some IT band issues. Once out front, he didn’t relent. Holmes crossed the line in 21:56, well ahead of his nearest competition.

Stephen Curley was next in 23:07, followed by Michael McGrane in 23:27. McGrane, who was also the top masters runner, was back at it only a couple of days after running the Falmouth Road Race. Crazy. Maybe he’s a fierce competitor who can’t resist the urge to put on the racing shoes and duke it out, or the allure of a couple of free beers was too much to ignore. We’ll never know.

The next three gentlemen were all HFC Striders. Holmes led the HFC charge with his win, and then Tom Vossen, Corey Hofmann and Chris Kelly sealed the team win with by sweeping spots 4-6.

The men took the first eleven spots, but then after that the ladies came roaring in. Erin Callahan was the winner in 27:18, followed by Allison Cherry (27:37) and Catherine Albright (28:08). Including those three, the women took 5 of the last 9 spots to close out the top twenty. Carol Chaoui was the top masters finisher in 30:45.

Here’s our interview with winner Andrew Holmes:
