Week in Review: Road Races, Scholarships and Life is Good
A look back at the week in Canton news.
Running seemed to be the theme of th week in Canton.
Let's start with the 2012 Sharon Triathlon, during which Canton resident Beth Allen came in as the second women's finisher in 29th place at 1:23.18.
Then there was the Falmouth Road Race, during which Canton's Michael Duggan finished as the top male runner from Canton in a time of 50:40.
And it doesn't end there. Runners will have the chance to hit the road in town again this fall, as Canton prepares to host the Reebok Road Race and the Classic Road Race.
Running was also the topic of this week's Patch Book Club discussion, which focused on the book "Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen" by Christopher McDougall.
Canton residents, and others from throughout the region, will also be able to get a bit of flavorful music this fall, as Canton is set to host the Life is Good Festival on Sept. 23.
