The 2008 running of the Irish Road Rover 5k was this morning in relatively warm but very windy conditions. The team competition was broken into 3 separate types of teams, club teams, open teams and corporate teams.

The usual suspects in the top of the USATF-ME circuit races, Dirigo R.C. and Triad Racing, were conspicuously absent at the top of the club team standings. Scoring required 4 folks to finish, and both teams only fielded 3 runners. The Maine Track Club managed to jump up in the standings and took the club team title with 13 points, beating Moms in Motion by 10 points.

The open teams were well represented, with 7 teams scoring in the results. Casco Bay Connection led the way with 14 points, destroying Team Tiki by 18 points.

Adam Goode was the overall race leader with a time of 16:23, beating Dan Franek (pictured) by 7 seconds.

Gretchen Chick had a slightly larger lead for her win in 19:07, beating Christine Snow Reaser by 34 seconds.
