Eric Estrada built such a large lead in the Harford Memorial Hospital Celebration Run Saturday, he had time to wander off the course and still win.

Leading from the start, Estrada missed a turn early in the race through Havre de Grace and lost about a minute before correcting his course. The 38-year-old Parkville resident won easily, however, entering the chute with a 63-second lead over the closest of 125 other runners. He finished in 17:48.

Duane Christy took second place in 18:51, and Peter Smith, third in 19:08. Others in the men’s top 10 were Kevin Koffenberger, 19:28; Eric Rose, 19:45; George Webber, 19:51; Paul Badders, 20:23; Mark Rosasco, 20:40; David Turborg, 21:07; and Brad Phillips, 21:22.

There was no uncertainty about the course direction in the women’s race. Pamela Halligan, who resides in Havre de Grace and won the race last year, finished in 19:59, about a quarter-mile ahead of another Havre de Grace resident, Karen Kenney, 21:48.

Carole Rosasco finished third in 22:20, and her mother-in-law, Marge Rosasco, was fourth in 23:22. Others in the women’s top 10 were Sara Senko, 23:31; Anneliese Carbone, 23:32; Laura Morris, 23:42; Megan Hill, 24:08; Tanya Peel, 24:25; and Sally Jones, 24:51.

Mathisen, Tisch lead Hammerman

Harford County triathletes Arthur Mathisen and Robert Tisch finished one-two in the inaugural Hammer Man Triathlon Saturday in Gunpowder State Park.

Mathisen led a field of 220 through a half-mile swim, 13-mile bike course, and 3.1-mile run in 1 hour, 6 minutes and 29 seconds.

He completed the swim in third place in 13:27 but surged into the lead on the bike with a 23.6 mph average. He closed with the fastest run time of 18:25.

Tisch, his closest challenger, clocked 13:41, 21.1 mph and 19:43 in the three phases to finish in 1:11:52. Michael Wyatt, 1:12:30; Samuel Vollner, 1:14:33; and David Foy, 1:14:38, took the next three places.

Katie Engeln won the women’s division in 1:19:43. She swam 14:22, averaged 19.4 mph on the bike, and ran 23:17. Others among the top-five women were Maura Carroll, 1:21:53; Colleen Hughes, 1:22:34; Lisa Goines, 1:23:30; and Marianne Myrtue, 1:25:45.

The race, hosted by Conte’s Bikes and Fitness of Bel Air, was conducted in the Hammerman Area of the state park.

Two other Harford runners collected age-group wins. Tanya Peel, of Pylesville, won the 40-49 group. Peel, who is competing in 40 races this year in observance of her 40th birthday, ran 26:34.
