Former UMaine women’s basketball player breaks Labor Day 5-miler course record
The Bangor Labor Day 5-mile road race celebrated its 55th birthday on a crisp, cool Monday morning in record-breaking fashion.
Tracy Guerrette, a former University of Maine women’s basketball standout, broke a course record that had stood for 13 years.
The native of St. Agatha covered the 5 miles starting from Geaghan’s Pub, around Bangor’s West side, and finishing at the Bangor Parks and Recreation building in 29-minutes flat, 23 seconds faster than the standard Cassie Hintz established in 2004.
The victory was Guerrette’s second in a row at the Labor Day race and more than 2 minutes quicker than her winning effort from 2016.
The overall winner was Old Town’s Erik McCarthy, who was unchallenged and completed the race in 25:52.
