Locals runners do well in marathon


Four local residents headed over the border to run in the annual Twin Cities Marathon in Minneapolis over the weekend.

Lorne Ricard ran the full marathon in a time of 3:22.00 to finish 585th out of 8,000 runners.

“I go every year,” he enthused.

His wife, Maureen, and son, Ricky, took part in the five-km event, finishing in times of 35 minutes and 25 minutes respectively.

Meanwhile, Don DeBenedet ran the 10-mile event in 1:12.00.

“[Don and I] are just getting ready to run the Chicago marathon in a couple of weeks,” noted Ricard. “It is close but we will see how it goes.”
