He’s also participated in the Sunday River Mountain Epic trail running challenge, a handful of Odyssey Adventure Racing multi-day expedition adventure races, and a few other over-the-top challenges to test his personal boundaries and push himself to the limit.

Hartnett captures Arnold Mills

July 4, 2011

CUMBERLAND — Chris Magill has had a history of top-three finishes at the Arnold Mills Road Race, an event he’s won a record five times.
The 38-year-old former St. Raphael Academy standout had every intention to make an attempt at a sixth crown in the 43rd edition of the Cumberland race Monday morning.
Those thoughts, however, were quickly erased after the first mile.

Cumberland 'tyke' leaves mark at Arnold Mills

July 4, 2011

CUMBERLAND — He only weighs 39 pounds and stands about 47 inches tall.
When he was lined up at the start of the Arnold Mills Road Race on Monday, it was easy to overlook the fact that Jack Casey was among the field of more than 500 runners.
Once the race opened up near the mile mark on Abbott Run Valley Road, the eight-year-old Cumberland tyke certainly became noticeable, making more than a few heads turn in the four-mile event.
Casey, an elementary student at Community School, finished the race with an eye-popping time of 29 minutes, 29 seconds – a 7:22 per-mile pace!

In the end Tampa wound up selecting Rocco Baldelli, but as Clinkscales recalled late last week, it took a while before everyone was in agreement regarding the Woonsocket native/Cumberland native .

Valley celebrates the Fourth

July 4, 2011

GLOCESTER — The sizzling heat that seared spectators lined up along the sidewalks in downtown Chapachet during last year's Ancients and Horribles Parade was replaced this year by more tolerable temperatures and a cool late afternoon summer breeze.
Unfortunately, a lot of the sizzle was also missing from the parade itself, which had far less floats than previous years and even less zaniness and political lampooning.

Instead, the 28-year-old is toiling under the hot sun in Tampa, Fla., the Yankees’ spring-training facility – Steinbrenner Field – the scene of Norton’s latest attempt to rehab from shoulder woes.
